Shoppers in Cleckheaton were in for a surprise when members of Spenborough Amateurs took to the steets to publicise their next production of La Cage Aux Folles.

Cast member Ian Stephenson said: “Many were captivated by the ‘outstanding beauty’ of the dancers in the show and by the elegance and charm of its leading lady – James Creegan!

“Dancers John Fisher, Thomas Thorpe and Craig Hobson braved the elements and some ‘cruel’ comments to hand out leaflets. John got a kiss and Craig a proposal!”

La Cage Aux Folles runs at the town hall, Cleckheaton, from Tuesday November 22 until Saturday November 26, nightly at 7.15pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.15pm.

Tickets are available from Kirklees booking offices.

The society will shortly be holding auditions for Acorn Antiques, which it will be staging in May.

Anyone interested in taking part should contact Margaret Gill on 0113 2550230.
