TEENAGE schoolgirl Laura Brockway will be putting on heavy make-up for her new part in a forthcoming theatre production.
But unlike most girls of her age, she will not be trying to look glamorous.
Instead Laura, 13, will age 70 years to take on the role of octogenarian spinster Miss Ursula Gatsby in Turn Again Theatre’s Fawlty Towers 2.
Her mother, Mel, will play alongside her as sidekick and fellow spinster Miss Angina Tibbs. However, Mel will only have to look 40 years older.
Laura, a pupil at Holmfirth High School, was not even been born when the original TV series starring John Cleese was a smash hit in the 1970s.
Turn Again Theatre broke all records when it staged Fawlty Towers three years ago and has decided to revive the production due to popular request.
Laura will be showing her versatility on stage as she is also playing the part of a sulky spoilt child.
The show is a real family affair for the Brockways with father Mark playing a public health inspector.
Fawlty Towers 2 runs from May 18 to 21 at Holmfirth Civic Hall. Tickets costing £6 and £4 are available from Holmfirth Information Office on (01484) 222444.
