New venture for company

Heanor Musical Theatre Company is presenting its first-ever play Murder On The Dance Floor, which has been written by two local authors.

Loosely based on a popular Saturday night TV dancing competition for celebrities, it features a clever plot which will keep the audience guessing who is the culprit. At the interval, the audience will also be invited to guess who they think is the killer - and the winner will get a prize.

The play is being performed at Wilmott Street Community Centre in Heanor on Friday, October 17, and at Codnor C of E Primary School, White Gates, on Saturday, October 18. Performances start at 7.30pm and tickets are £5. The box office is 07472 003095.

Musical Theatre member Debbie Twells wrote the play last year with former member Brett Hart. She commented: “We have a good cast of actors and it’s brilliant seeing our words brought to life. Everyone is enjoying rehearsals and I’m sure the audience will have a great night out.”

The producer is Trish Church, who joined the company last year. She is a prominent member of the Watson Players in Derby and has wide experience of acting and producing.

Chairman of the company is Kim Harris, who said: “We are very excited at producing this play which has been written by two of our members. We now plan to produce a play each autumn. Shortly we will be announcing our show of 2015 and appealing for more actors and singers.”
