AN operatic and dramatic society is still searching for more men to star in their upcoming show.

The Stowmarket Operatic and Dramatic Society has been searching for males of all ages for its forthcoming production of "Me and My Girl''.

The society, established in 1922, had to use women for male roles during its "Fiddler on the Roof'' show earlier in the year.

Jill Smith, publicity officer for the 50-strong group that includes members of all ages, had to wear a moustache for her role as a man in the last show.

"Me and My Girl'' is a musical set in London about a cockney chap, Bill, who inherits a large amount of money.
