It will be performed at The Brook, Soham from Thursday 11 to Saturday 13 February.

Kerry Hibbert who will be playing Rita said of her role: “I auditioned for this role because Rita is such a fascinating, fun character to play and a challenge.

“I’ve enjoyed learning a new accent for the role and I’m looking forward to all the 80’s clothes!”

Rowan Maulder, after performing as Bob Cratchit in Viva’s last performance of A Christmas Carol at St Andrew’s Church, will be playing Dr Frank Bryant.
