Members of Falkirk Operatic Society will be back on stage in April with their production of Hello, Dolly! – two years later than originally planned due to the pandemic.
The cast had been busy rehearing in 2020 when Covid cancelled their plans only a short time before they were due to take to the stage.
A spokesperson for the society said: “As we were only about a month away from show week in 2020 when the show was unfortunately cancelled, and, after all the hard work everyone had put into the rehearsals then, the Society felt it is the right thing to do and bring Hello Dolly back for our production in April 2022.”The show will take place in Falkirk Town Hall Theatre from Tuesday, April 26 through to Saturday, April 30, with a matinee performance on the Saturday.
