Appalachian setting for story

Dark of the Moon, a Wirksworth Community Theatre production, is to be performed on April 3-5 at Wirksworth Town Hall.

Deep in the Appalachian mountains, witch boy John is in love with pretty Barbara Allen, but in order to win her he must become a human. How will it all end?

This exciting drama by Howard Richardson and William Berney includes dancing choreographed by Wendy Cook and singing conducted by Lester Simpson with the Raise Your Voices Choir. Actors have been drawn from across the community and include the youthful energy of Anthony Gell students.

Tickets (£6/£4) are available at Traid Links, Market Square, Wirksworth.
