Neil Tranmer and Angela Foulds are once again directing again after their hugely successful production of the Snow Queen in 2018.

Although the society, which recently won Most Accomplished Panto at the Association of Community Theatre (ACT) awards for its last production, Cinderella, could not perform last year due to covid, members managed to put on an outdoor performance of Robin Hood in the summer at the Prairie Sports Village, Burnley, in conjunction with Burnley Leisure.

Members cannot wait to get back on stage at the Mechanics Theatre in Burnley and Sleeping Beauty boasts a cast of experienced, returning members as well as new faces.
