TWO actors set to take to the stage in Marsden early next month are having to learn their lines abroad.
Carolyn Taylor is the leading lady for the Marsden Operatic Society’s forthcoming production of farce Moon Over Buffalo.
She, husband Graham and their two children are currently in the Costa Del Sol – having been due to arrive back last Friday but were stranded after all planes were grounded.
Richard Haigh, who also appears in the production, is marooned in Florida.
He, wife Lindsey and their two children were on the plane ready to fly back when the airspace was closed off. They had to get off the plane and find somewhere to stay.
The play starts on May 12.
Meanwhile, poet Simon Armitage and family were stuck in France.
The Huddersfield-born poet, his family and friends hired a vehicle and drove from Geneva to Zeebrugge where they got a ferry.
