A ROALD Dahl favourite is set to be portrayed by a village drama group.

Longnor Players will be presenting 'The Witches' from February 20 until 22.

The Players are a rural community performing arts group with participants of all ages from across the Staffordshire Moorlands.

Jules Scott, chairman and co-director of Longnor Players, said: "We are a group of talented individuals dedicated to giving our best for our audiences.

"The Longnor Players has gained a far reaching reputation for putting on magical, fun family shows."

Their latest production of Roald Dahl's 'The Witches' has been adapted by David Wood.

It is being directed by Gordon and Jules Scott, and produced by Ged Fitzgibbons.

'Witches really are a detestable breed. They disguise themselves as lovely ladies, when secretly they want to squish and squelch all the wretched children they despise.

Luckily one boy and his grandmother know how to recognise these vile creatures, but can they get rid of them for good?'

Shows will run at Manifold Primary School in Warslow from February 20 until February 22 at 7pm with doors and bar opening at 6.30pm.

There will also be a Saturday Matinee Show at 2pm with doors and bar opening at 1.30pm.

Tickets, priced at £7 for adults and £4 for children and senior citizens, are available from shops in Longnor, Hartington and Warslow. Alternatively call Ged on 01298 83571 or contact the group via www.longnorplayers.org.uk.
