East Anglian accountancy firm Ensors is again sponsoring the Eastern Angles theatre company’s Christmas Show.

And, in keeping with a long-standing tradition, senior partner Malcolm McGready donned one of the costumes when he went along to the Sir John Mills Theatre in Ipswich to meet the cast for a publicity photo-shoot.

Mr McGready said: “No matter what the costume, I always look forward to joining the cast for this special occasion. We are proud to support such a talented team in their one-of-a-kind Christmas performances”.

This year’s show, The Ladykillers of Humber Doucy Lane, adds an Eastern Angles spin to the classic 1950s Ealing comedy, The Ladykillers.

It will then transfer to the Key Theatre in Peterborough, with the title amended to The Ladykillers of Orton Brimbles, for a further week.
