THE UCKFIELD Theatre Guild presents ‘Below Stairs’ at Uckfield Community Technology College this week.
This is a musical comedy based on the life of the servants in a large house, focussing on the life of Lucy Ambelside, a lady’s maid with big ambitions.
This original production, written by Trevor Pilling and Alan Lewis, is set at the outbreak of World War 1 and even features Emmeline Pankhurst and a group of Suffragettes. The show is packed with toe-tapping music, romance and humour.
The writers allow groups to perform this show free of charge if they raise money for Cancer Research UK so there will be buckets at the exits to collect donations for this worthy cause.
The Guild is performing the 14th production of the show and all performers are very excited about it.
Visitors can enjoy refreshments in the Edwardian tea room and a good, fun show at the college theatre from Thursday to Saturday, April 12-14 with a charity matinee on Saturday where there will also be a signed performance for people with hearing difficulties.
Details can be found on posters around the town and tickets are still available from The Flower Shop in the town.
