St Ambrose Players have enjoyed getting into classic Oscar Wilde characters for their upcoming show, The Importance of Being Earnest.

The Leyland-based amateur dramatics groups last performed the tale in 1965 and member Sarah White said: “This is classic farce at its very best, a comedy of manners and social indiscretions with classic lines and characters adding to all the fun of the play.

“There’s also a wonderful cast with familiar and new faces.

“Our two lead men, Ian Spencer and Daniel Barron, joined the society for South Pacific and this will be their first play with the society – 
and we are thrilled to have them.

“The cast are very much looking forward to the week of the show.”

Tickets are available at Grandad Jim’s Sweet Shop in Chapel Brow, Leyland, priced at £7 and £5 (OAP concessions Wednesday and Saturday).

The show runs from tomorrow until Saturday.
