GANGSTERS and molls abound in Worle Operatic and Dramatic Society's new production, which hits the Playhouse next month.

42nd Street, billed as 'a show within a show', tells the story of aspiring actress Peggy Sawyer (played by Natalie Kessell) who is catapulted into the lead role when Dorothy Brock, an established Broadway star, (Bev Priest), breaks her ankle.

A gambling financier, prima donnas and hormonal youngsters are also thrown into the mix.

A backdrop of familiar songs including the title track, Lullaby of Broadway and We're in the Money will take the audience down memory lane.

The cast includes the majority of the society who will tap dance their way through the show's opening number.

The show is on from November 12-14, starting at 7.30pm, with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

Tickets, priced £9, are available from the theatre's box office on 01934 645544.

The Weston & Somerset Mercury has teamed up with the Playhouse to offer readers the chance to win tickets to see the show.
