THEATRE lovers will be able to banish the winter blues and enjoy a toe-tapping performance of popular musical Guys and Dolls.

St Paul’s (Astley Bridge) AOS will take to the stage at 7.30pm tonight at Walmsley Parish Hall, Blackburn Road, Egerton.

Set in 1950s New York, the musical follows a host of colourful characters in a humorous and touching story based around the bright lights and shady corners of Times Square.

Steve Brennan, chairman of St Paul’s, said: “This year we welcome back Paul Cohen as our director and choreographer.

“Paul is joined by musical director Susan Barber. They have worked very hard for us and I am sure they will produce an excellent and enjoyable show.”

The group has been without a permanent venue since the closure of the Theatre Church, Astley Bridge, in 2012 and is hoping people will support them at the new venue, made available thanks to Walmsley Church Parish Council and Walmsley AODS.

Guys and Dolls runs until Saturday, call 01204 847866 for tickets.
