In the 1980s, Me and My girl was revised by Stephen Fry with Mike Okrent, and revived in the West End in 1984 running for eight years and receiving two Laurence Oliver Awards.

It became very popular in the late 1990s and it is very funny. It was pleasing for GTC that Stephen Fry wished them well with the show by sending them a signed card.

Director, Julia Rymer said: “We are thrilled. It’s a show for everyone, rehearsals are going very well indeed, and the cast are clearly enjoying themselves. The songs are well known and characterisation and performances are developing nicely.”

The show is from Wednesday, November 8 to Saturday, 11. Tickets are available from Gorleston Pavilion Theatre on 01493 662832 or at www.gorlestonpavilion.co.uk
