The Settlement Players showcase one act plays on Saturday night


If laughter is the best medicine, get set for a course of top treatment at Melbourn Village College on Saturday night.

And just in case you can’t make it for the first performance, there’s an extra dose next week as well.

Preparing the prescription for fun are the Foxton Luvvies, who write and perform original shows and give all the profits to worthy causes.

Their latest offering is A Night In The Theatre, a musical set in a hospital, which features popular musical songs parodied to match the set.

Get set to tap your toes to numbers like One Night In Pre-op and Any Screen Will Do.

The show has been written and directed by Andy Ranner, who has been writing his own material for more than 30 years.

He said: “We rehearse every Sunday with the musicians and things are clicking into gear now.

“Our cast spans all ages, some have been with us for many years and for some this is their second production. We also include videos to make the productions a little different.

The production, following on from last year’s Tamla Foxtown extravaganza, is dedicated to two villagers who both lost their lives to motor neurone disease in the last year.

The curtain goes up at 7.30pm and tickets are available from the village shop in Foxton.

You can also pay on the door (£7 for adults and £4 for children under 15).

Next year the Luvvies aim to be back treading the boards with a more traditional panto production – if you’d like to get involved, you can call Andy Ranner on 01223 874143.
