Will their love conquer the class divide?The popular show features a number of classic songs including Leaning On A Lamp Post, Lambeth Walk, The Sun Has Got His Hat On and Me and My Girl.More than 40 people will be performing in the production and both leading pairs, Sally and Bill and Jacqueline and Gerald, will be played by real-life couples.Performances will take place at 7.30pm, with a matinee on November 15 at 2.30pm.Tickets, priced £10-£12, are available from the box office on 01934 645544 or via www.theplayhouse.co.uk Family tickets are available. * The Weston & Somerset Mercury has teamed up with The Playhouse to offer one lucky reader the chance to each win a pair of tickets to enjoy Me and My Girl.
