A SLICE of classic English television comedy will be recreated live when Stone Revellers present The Vicar of Dibley for charity.
Life in the sleepy village of Dibley is turned upside-down when the ancient Rev 'Potty' Pottle dies and the bishop controversially sends a female vicar, Geraldine Granger, as his replacement.
Her arrival is met with a mixture of wonder and horror from members of the Dibley Parish Council and of course Alice, the local verger. Head of the Parish Council and pillar of the community, David Horton, is particularly appalled, and resolves to have her removed. But Owen, Frank, Jim and Mrs Cropley have other ideas.
Geraldine finally manages to throw the two village idiots Hugo and Alice together, and in the run-up to their spectacularly silly wedding, even David must admit that Geraldine is the best thing to have ever happened to Dibley. Relive this wonderfully funny and charming BBC classic right here in Stone, and be part of the congregation for Hugo and Alice's hilarious wedding. Oh and of course, as always with Stone Revellers Summer production, a meal is included during the performance – fish and chips for everyone.
The musical was first seen in a limited three-week workshop production at New York Theatre Workshop in 1994.
It runs until Saturday at St Michael's Hall, in Lichfield Street, Stone, from 7.30pm to 10pm.
Tickets are £12/£10 concessions including a fish and chip supper and there will be a licensed bar. They are available from Home & Colour Centre in High Street, Stone or by calling 01785 817307. The production will be raising funds for Comic Relief.
