IPSWICH Evening Star Witches skipper Scott Nicholls (pictured above) is to become a theatre star in Ipswich.

He is at the centre of a one-man show being staged at the New Wolsey studio theatre, St George Street, Ipswich on Wednesday May 26 at 7.45 pm.

The new play follows one man's journey to Cardiff, where he aims to witness Scott lift the world speedway crown.

Along his way there are plenty of amusing anecdotes to keep the speedway fan smiling from tapes up to chequered flag.

The play is the brainchild of ardent Witches' fan Rob Alexander, who previously worked at the Wolsey Theatre in a variety of plays and grew up in Leiston.

He said: "It seemed a great opportunity to unite two passions, acting and speedway."

The show is entitled Grime and Punishment and is a Fever Pitch-style drama. It is being

premiered at the Studio Theatre as part of the New Wolsey Pulse Festival.

Ipswich are scheduled to be riding at Poole on May 26, but for those Witches fans not making the journey down to Dorset a visit to the theatre would be an interesting alternative.

Nicholls will be in action tomorrow night when the Witches look to double Wolverhampton, having won at Monmore Green on Easter Monday.

With Daniel Nermark out with a broken thigh, Wolves will use the rider replacement facility against a full strength Witches.
