A MUSICAL hoping to educate people about the dangers of rogue traders and bogus callers will take to the stage in Suffolk next month.

The Scambuster production, featuring a cast of professional actors, is being hosted by Safe and Sound, a multi-agency group aiming to reduce crime and the fear of crime. The shows will be held at a range of locations across the county.

The musical is similar to the Trickster shows staged by the group previously, and features a live story-telling event with music from the 1960s.

It is based on true stories, and features the story of a man who is targeted by a rogue tradesman and a woman who thinks she has won the holiday of a lifetime.

Performances are free - no tickets are required - and refreshments will be provided. The first performance is on Monday, September 3 at Whitehouse Community Centre, Limerick Close, Ipswich, starting at 10am.

Performances are also being held at Bungay, Woodbridge, Newmarket, Felixstowe, Kesgrave and Bury St Edmunds. For a full list of times and dates go to www.onesuffolk.co.uk/safeandsound/whatshappening
