Ambitious new drama at Wirksworth

Wirksworth Community Theatre will be staging an ambitious new production in St Mary’s Church, Wirksworth from April 14-16.

Heaven, Hell and Everything Else, derives from the first part of the Lichfield Mystery Cycle.

Well known Bible stories will be retold with a combination of reverence, drama and slapstick.

Directors Helen and Mike Knott have promised a number of theatrical surprises.

Lichfield Mysteries stage an impressive festival of their complete Mystery Cycle every three years.

This new theatre project will draw on talent from Wirksworth actors and musicians, school students, dancers, choir members and beyond.

The Community Theatre is now able to widen the scope of its programme thanks to an award of almost £4,000 from the Central England Co-operative’s Making a Difference Community Dividend.

Tickets are on sale at Traid Links, Wirksworth, 01629 824393.
