Viva Theatre Company raises the curtain on its first musical production next week.

The company presents Victoria Wood’s Acorn Antiques the Musical! at The Brook, from November 6-8.

The show is directed by David Tickner and Stephen Kenna, who have held a number of successful musicals at Soham Village College.

A Viva spokesman said: “After starting in Soham in 2007 Viva has decided to take on a new and exciting challenge in the form of its first ever musical.

“After the great success of Pride and Prejudice in the summer we are back with a completely different style.
