Acorn Antiques : 8th-12th April 2014

The award-winning amateur theatre group ELODS are proud to present this hilarious musical by Victoria Wood, based on the well-loved TV series. The musical follows Miss Babs' struggle to keep her antiques business open, as shop after shop in the High Street is forced out by faceless chains. Can she afford to turn down the offer from The Guilty Bean (the world's second biggest chain of coffee shops - "We're second so we grind harder") and if they do update the shop, can they still afford to employ Mrs Overall? And will Mr Clifford ever get his memory back, and remember who he's engaged to? And most worryingly, will Mrs Overall be able to tap dance while holding the tray?

Macaroon anyone?
