The stage is being set and rehearsals are on by the Crookwell Amateur Dramatic Society (CADS) for their upcoming play The Vicar of Dibley.
Set in a fictional village called Dibley, the play has several funny incidents leading up to the marriage of characters Alica and Hugo.
The stage play has been written by Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter and is an adaption of British sitcom The Vicar of Dibley, by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer.
Robert Bill, president of CADS, said the play is being staged in Crookwell for the first time after permission has been sought from UK-based Tiger Aspect Production.
"The play is very entertaining with funny one line deliveries. There are nine local actors taking part in the play, including two who are from Goulburn. The rehearsals for the play are on and everyone is doing a great job," Mr Bill said.
"We decided to stage the play in Crookwell as we are coming out of COVID-19. We want people to come together for a social gathering, enjoy the evening and have a laugh."
He urges everyone to come and see the play. "We look forward to people coming and enjoying themselves," he said.
The play is being staged as restrictions after COVID-19 are being eased. However, the organisers will ensure that necessary precautions are taken and appropriate social distancing measures are implemented.
The play will be staged at Crookwell Memorial Hall and bookings can be made through the Crookwell Visitor Information Centre on (02) 4832 1988. It will be held on November 6-8, 13-15 and 19-21.
