ANOTHER top-notch production is heading to Bridlington’s Spotlight Theatre.

The West End musical Me And My Girl will be performed by Bridlington Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society at the theatre, in West Street, starting on Easter Monday April 25, and running until Saturday, April 30.

The musical follows the story of the long-lost heir to the Baronetcy of Hareford, which turns out to be Lambeth’s own cockney Sparrow, Bill Snibson.

Bill has to fend off the affections of gold-digging Lady Jacqueline, and win the approval of the flabbergasted family.

He has his own girlfriend, Sally, who isn’t interested in the posh parties – and is eventually persuaded by Bill’s aunt the Duchess to leave him before he can accept his title.

But Bill still loves Sally, and goes to great lengths to get her back with the help of family solicitor Mr Parchester.

He expends all his energy on locating Sally and bringing her back, and finally rejects Lady Jacqueline.

Bill is making to leave the baronetcy and the house of Hareford behind when in comes a new Eliza Dolittle – a posh Sally!

The production includes songs such as The Sun Has Got His Hat On, The Lambeth Walk, and Leaning On A Lampost.

The classic work, originally written by L Arthur Rose and Douglas Furber, with music by Noel Gay, will feature all of the Spotlight’s usual artistic flair and warm humour.

Tickets are £7.50 for adults and £4 for children, and are available from Bridlington Blinds and Curtains, at the top of Bridge Street.

Performances start at 7.30pm.
