GUEST director Kelvyn Waites is the man steering Honley Players to side-splitting success in their latest show.
Kelvyn, who has worked with Emley Drama Group for a number of years, has crossed the valley to work with the Honley society on a new production which opens at the village’s Southgate Theatre on Wednesday.
The show is a spoof murder mystery, Inspector Drake’s Last Case, written by David Tristram. It is one of a series of farces that he has written with a crime theme.
Watch out for characters such as the inspector and Miss Duck, Mr Butler the guest and Mr Guest the Butler.
You get the idea!
This is a sequel, or more accurately, a prequel since it was written first, to Inspector Drake and the Perfekt Crime, which the Players staged two years ago.
Kelvyn has brought together a team of experienced actors from the Players, plus a number of performers from other local groups in Huddersfield, Halifax and Emley.
The first thing for audiences to do is identify the victim, then beat Inspector Drake and Sergeant Plod to the identity of the killer. Shouldn’t be too difficult.
Tickets are £6 on 01484 662378 or from Karridays News in the village.
Performances run from Wednesday to Saturday, starting at 7.30pm.
