ACTORS with Horwich RMI and District Amateur Operatic Society were in fine tune for their 1989 production of The Pajama Game.

The theatre company staged the production set in a pyjama factory, with workers demands for a pay rise falling on deaf ears as love blossoms between Babe, the grievance committee head, and Sid, the new factory superintendent.

The stage show, which opened in March of 1989 starred Graham Edgington, Norman Darcy and Irene Lunt, who are pictured rehearsing.

The musical is based on the 953 novel 7½ Cents by Richard Bissell and was turned into a film starring Doris Day, featuring memorable songs such as "The Pajama Game", "Racing with the Clock" and "I'm Not at All in Love".

The original West End production opened at the London Coliseum on October 13, 1955 where it ran for 588 performances.
