Repton School saves the day

The Good Companions Stage Society, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year very nearly found themselves with nowhere to perform one of their key shows.

They were due to perform The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas at the Guildhall Theatre but, when it closed for maintenance work, the race was on to find a new home.

Fortunately the 400 Hall Theatre at Repton School was available and it will be hosting the society’s spring  production. 

The show, which is based on a true story, revolves around the Chicken Ranch, a Pleasure Palace in a small Texas town. 

The locals have a good relationship with the institution, and its owner, Miss Mona, is respected in the community. However, when a TV reporter exposes the goings-on in the Chicken Ranch, outside interests want it shut down. 

The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas takes place from April 10-13, at 7.30pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. Tickets available from Derby Live on 01332 255800 or 

The performance on Thursday April 11 will be a BSL signed performance.
