TICKETS are selling fast for a charity summer variety show by an award-winning Suffolk theatre group.
Saints Alive! is set to play for three nights next week - and the highly-talented Trimley Saints Players are hoping it will be a sell out by the time the curtain rises.
Last year the group raised £2,000 for charity from shows and also did two cabarets for charity as well.
The new show - being presented at the Trimley Memorial Hall, High Road, Trimley St Martin, from August 23 to 25 - marks the Saints' 25th anniversary.

The evening will be a bit of a change from last summer's successful Are You Being Served.
It will be a revue-style variety show which will incorporate a nostalgic look back over the best comedy sketches and favourite music from the group's shows produced over the past 25 years, together with a lively mix of new material.

A special feature will be a selection of the best of the best from the Saints' highly-acclaimed musicals, Little Shop of Horrors, Jack the Ripper and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas - the summer shows between 2001 and 2003.
The company has enjoyed reliving these moments in rehearsal and is sure audiences will love seeing them again and have great fun.
Rehearsals have been going well, although they have had to be fitted around everyone's summer holidays to make sure everyone is prepared for the big opening night.
The group kicked off this year with their traditional sell-out January panto, this time Jack and the Beanstalk, written by Damian Trasler, David Lovesy and Steve Clark.
Saints Alive! will be on August 23, August 24 and August 25, nightly at 7.30pm. Further information and to book tickets, ring 01394 671119.
