BOOK YOUR SEATS
Brigg Amateur Operatic Society has been presenting shows in the town for more than a century.
And tickets went on sale this week for the latest production, Crazy For You, which will be staged at Vale of Ancholme Technology College's Westmoor Hall, on Grammar School Road, from October 28 to November 1. There will be evening performances at 7.30pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.
Tickets are available from Brigg Beds, on Prince's Street, Monday to Saturday, 9.30am-5pm. The production features music and lyrics my famous duo George and Ira Gershwin.
Scores of people from Brigg and surrounding area support the operatic society and look forward, each year, to attending its annual production.
Brigg's Peter Bell, long-serving member of the society, produced an excellent book to celebrate the centenary. Get your hands on a copy, if you haven't already done so.
Our picture turns the clock back many years to a previous production with Hetty Roberts and A E Lawrence in a duet, possibly from the opera Mikado.
