The Gazette: Players On A Hi-de-Hi After Meeting Su!

January 24th, 2016

bpoolgazette15aMembers of a Fylde theatre group have had preparations for their latest production boosted by some genuine insider tips. Fylde Coast Players are busy in rehearsal for Hi-De-Hi, a stage adaptation of the fondly-remembered BBC TV comedy of the 1980s, which is set for Lytham’s Lowther Pavilion in March.

Playing chambermaid Peggy, a role made famous on TV by Su Pollard will be Heather Cartmell, long a familiar face to Fylde amdram audiences, while Paul Lomax directs.

Both made the most of the opportunity to take some advice on the part from comedy veteran Su, who recently wowed audiences as the Wicked Queen in the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs panto at Blackpool – and were delighted with Su’s support and particularly the fact that she even pledged to come along and see the Lowther production if she is free.
