THEY are the actors who bring sunshine to the Lawrence Batley Theatre stage.

The Sunshine Players, the theatre’s drama group for the over 50s, return to the LBT with a new piece called Come To Slinkies.

It’s a comedy, devised by the group and directed by Ron Wiener.

They’ve set the piece in Slinkies, a rundown bar where the owner is trying to boost his lunchtime trade with a spot of pole dancing!.

His staff members understandably have mixed feelings and mayhem follows.

See the show at the theatre on Thursday June 9 at 11am.

Tickets are £3 / concessions £2 from the box office on 01484 430528 or go online at
