Hard to believe but we are already one month into rehearsals for our next production with 57 days to go to first night. The cast are dusting off their American accents for this light hearted and warm comedy centred in the fictional town of Eden Falls, Georgia, USA.

So here are a few teaser photos from Dress Rehearsals…
