TWO comediennes take to the stage at the Angles Theatre in Wisbech on Friday in their new stage show that’s packed with ketches, characters and songs.

Marina O’Shea and Tess O’Gaukroger are making a name for themselves across the UK, with their friendly, witty and instinctive style, as they appear up and down the country.

The comedy duo, O and O, will perform their new show A Comedy of Careers, exploring what might have happened had they chosen different careers.

The show starts at 7.30pm. and tickets cost £11 and £9.

*Early next month, the school’s edition of Miss Saigon will be performed at the Angles Theatre by RATz amateur youth.

The musical, only recently released for performance by amateurs, is by Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil, with lyrics by Boublil and Richard Maltby, Jr.

Set in late 1970s Saigon during the Vietnam War, the musical is based on Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, and tells the tragic tale of a doomed romance involving a young Vietnamese woman abandoned by her American GI.
