Songs from the shows at St Mary’s on Saturday night.

A MUSICAL theatre concert is being held at Bideford’s St Mary’s Church on Saturday night.

Members of local theatrical group ‘Encore!’ will be performing songs and excerpts from favourite shows during a fun-filled evening of family entertainment.

The group, which formed in March last year, features many of the principals from local amateur dramatic groups that have performed at Barnstaple’s Queen’s Theatre during the last seven years.

Member Heather Gray said: “If you saw My Fair Lady, Oliver!; The Pirates of Penzance; The Sound of Music; Carousel; Oklahoma!; The King & I; or Fiddler On The Roof, then you saw members of Encore! playing the lead roles.”

The group, which regularly rehearses at Lavington United Reformed Church in Bridgeland Street, helps raise funds for charity.

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £5 on the door, or in advance on 01237 474078. Children under 12 go free.
