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.

“Be ready for tap dancing, outrageous plot twists and the odd bad word. Come along and join in the laughter and don’t forget the macaroons!”

Performances take place each evening from 7.30pm. Doors open at 7pm. Tickets are £10 adults, £8 concessions.

Parental guidance is recommended.

To purchase tickets, contact the box office on 01353 722 228 or book online at
