GARSTANG Theatre Group is ringing the changes this Spring. Instead of its usual musical production the group is presenting three episodes from the classic TV series “Fawlty Towers.

The episodes are “The Hotel Inspectors,” “Communication Problems,” and “Basil the Rat”

Secretary Terry Underdown said all the scripts were from the original BBC programmes. “Our members are very excited about this venture and rehearsals are going well,” he said.

Reproducing the various parts of the hotel has presented a challenge for scenic designer Tony Yates but he has come up trumps with a composite set and is now busy with the construction.

A junior member of the group, Rosie Taylor, has been nominated for a National Organisation of Dramatic Art North West Region award for her role as Dorothy in “The Wizard of Oz” in Spring 2011.
