The Playhouse Theatre’s final show of the year is guaranteed to have audiences laughing.

The Vicar of Dibley began life as a British sitcom and originally ran on the BBC from 1994 to 2007.

It is now a stage play, with the same quirky characters and hilarious storylines.

Director Di Wills said the play will start at the very beginning.

“The play, set in the fictional small Oxfordshire village of Dibley, follows season one of the popular television show, when the Parish is assigned a female Vicar,” Di said.

“We have a fabulous cast that audiences will love: Geraldine Grainger played by Tracey Shears, David Horton: Nigel Dick, Hugo Horton: Rowan Lawton, Alice Tinker: Katrina Knight, Frank Pickle: Des Gellert, Jim Trott: Ian Whiteley, Owen Newitt: Phillip Fresta and Mrs Cropley: Peg Gellert.”

There will be six performance of The Vicar of Dibley: November 24, 25 and 30  and December 1 and 2 at 7:30 pm, with a matinee – Sunday November 26 at 3 pm.

Bookings are now from the box office at the theatre, 2B Steffensen Street, weekends from 10 am til 12 noon, in person or via phone 4153 1904, or click here online.

Tickets are adults: $23, concession/groups 10+: $19.

Programs will be available for a gold coin donation.
