"Demented Bliss at
Sheringham Little Theatre"
Having a wife in Streatham and another one in Wimbledon means that London cabbie John Smith's knife-edge schedules have to be kept to just that! A minor accident and the ensuing mild concussion are the primary cause that creates perhaps the greatest of Ray Cooney's farces - 'Run For Your Wife'.

Sheringham Community Paper Complications arise when Mr Smith is incapacitated in hospital and is faced with a succession of prying policeman and his two irate wives, eventually forcing him to bravely confess his misdemeanours. Ray Cooney has been described as a 'national treasure' by the Telegraph while the Times describes this farce as 'two and a half hours of demented bliss'.

The cast for this production consists of Robert Meadwell, Elizabeth Scott, Alex Blake, Will Rowbotham, Lauren Hassan-Leslie and Sam Bern as well as local celebrity Paul Barnes. The farce is produced by Nicky Matthews. 'Run for Your Wife' is sponsored by Jason Bell, Pictures & Things, The Courtyard, Sheringham. It runs from Tuesday 15th to Saturday 26th July. Running times for weekday matinees and evenings are 2.30pm and 8.00pm. Saturdays 5.00pm and 8.15pm. Prices are evenings 10.00 (concessions 9.00) and matinees 8.00 (concessions 7.00)

Dear @ Sheringham
My wife and myself are most surprised that you have not made any comments regarding the brilliant production of "Daisy Pulls it Off" at The Little Theatre.

The cast comprised of local school-age young people, supported by three adults and of course the back-room staff.
The youngsters are a credit to their parents, teachers at their school and a hope for the future of Sheringham.

We had a splendid evening and are sure the other two evenings' audiences felt the same.

Well done everyone. Keep up the good work!
Mr & Mrs C Nickerson

In Issue 16 we told you about a new trophy sponsored by Goss Antiques. At the bottom of the advert the phrase 'The Spirit of Carnival' was used.

This must not be confused with the
Barry Horner Memorial Shield
which is awarded to the Individual, Group or Float that reflects the Best "Spirit of Carnival".

Our apologies for any confusion this may have caused.
Get working on those Floats
Can you remember the "Good old days', when Sheringham Carnival Parade was full of huge floats, some of which could hardly get under the bridge down Beeston Road? I certainly can. Full of colour and music, the route lined by people laughing at the antics both on and off the mobile floats. Each float was topical and funny. Everyone let their hair down, dressed up in silly costumes and generally reverted to their youth. The Pubs and Clubs all tried to outdo the others and if I recall correctly one year the height was misjudged and one got stuck under the bridge for a while.

Well, every year now, Sheringham Carnival is improving. Slowly but surely the local businesses and clubs are again entering the parade. Last years efforts were outstanding and one float that was especially good to see was the Royal British Legion (who will be back again this year). It doesn't have to cost a fortune, you don't have to be a busness or club, just a group of family or friends. Put your heads together and give us all a giggle. Laughter is the best medicine as the saying goes and to see the smiles on the faces of the children alone, makes the effort worthwhile.  You don't have to be on a lorry, the walkers, wheelchairs and other fancy dress entrants all add that little bit extra.
Sheringham Community Paper To top it off, the proceeds go to local charities and good causes, so you are having a great time and helping others at the same time. So go on, give it a go.
