Generous firms have clubbed together to keep a cash-strapped theatre company on stage.
Holmfirth-based amateur dramatics group, Turn Again Theatre, feared it would be curtains for their production of Agatha Christie’s The Hollow.
But the show will go on from tomorrow until Saturday (7.30pm) at Holmfirth Civic Hall, thanks to donations and assistance from Holme Valley businesses.
The whodunit, set at a country house in the 1920s, will now feature authentic period furniture supplied by Distinctive Chesterfields, of Honley and props from fellow thespians, Honley Players.
Meanwhile Brambles Cafe, Holmfirth, and Christ Church, New Mill, have been providing the currently homeless theatre group with rehearsal spaces.
And so it’ll be all right on the night. The Postcard pub opposite Holmfirth Civic Hall will be providing space to store props and the set, while BBs hair salon, Station Road, Holmfirth, will be styling the 1920s hair-dos.
Director Roni Brophy said: “Receiving this help from local businesses and other community groups has been invaluable.
“We’re never sure where we’re going to get everything from and with no set or props, there’s simply no show.
“We hear a lot about there being no community spirit these days but, with all the help we’ve received, I’d have to say that the opposite is true.
“It’s fantastic to experience such support from others in our local area.”
