Scouts and guides show to be staged in Bridgwater
THE fast-paced foot-tapping show from Taunton Scouts and Guides is coming to Bridgwater in April.
Following the closure of the Brewhouse in Taunton, Junction 24 has offered to stage the production, which will run from Tuesday, April 9 to Saturday, April 13 – as originally planned.
It will be the group’s 23rd performance, offering a full evening of family entertainment featuring song dance and comedy.
The cast and crew, who feared they might have to cancel the show, continued with their preparations and are delighted their efforts have not been in vain.
Director Dave Mullen said: “We are really thrilled that the show can still go ahead for 2013.
"We had lost money and were struggling to find a solution but we knewwe just had to continue with our rehearsals and hope something would come along.”
Patch Jobson, Events Manager at Junction24, which is honouring tickets bought for the Brewhouse production, said: “We don’t want regional audiences or community groups to suffer when we have the space, availability and passion to make sure these shows go ahead. I am so pleased we could help.”
Performances start at 7.15pm and tickets cost £9. To book visit www.thevenueat24. junction24ltd.co.uk
