25/09/08 - 04/10/08
Venue: The Forum Studio Theatre
The show is based on the classic BBC TV Comedy series of the home guard of Walmington on Sea. The play features all the characters and is based on 3 episodes from the different series.....
The Deadly Attachment
A German U Boat crew are found adrift in a dinghy. At the Church Hall, Mainwaring and his men are given the task of guarding them, but the roles are soon reversed when Corporal Jones is caught in an awkward position
Captain Mainwaring's plans to involve the women of the town in the platoon become rather too personal.
The Godiva Affair
At a Town Parade Mainwaring and his men are taking part as Morris dancers, but who will play Lady Godiva? Mrs Pike, Mrs Fox or an even bigger surprise?
To finish the night off we have The Floral Dance which was originally presented at the Royal Variety show and promises to bring a rousing end to the night!
