‘Acorn Antiques – The Musical’ is an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza about a struggling antiques shop in the mythical town of Manchesterford, which will be performed at the Birchmeadow Centre from 12 to 15 July. Written by Victoria Wood, it follows the story of sisters Miss Babs and Miss Berta, who are finding it hard to keep their antiques shop solvent. There’s plenty of laughs in this much-loved comedy as Babs and Berta are joined by Mr Clifford and Mrs Overall and the members of Bridgnorth Musical Theatre Company. Adult themes mean the show is not suitable for children under 14 years. Tickets are £12, available online; search for Bridgnorth Musical Theatre Company via positickets.co.uk, or in person from Downes’ Greengrocer, Broseley and Mike and Sarah’s Butchers, Bridgnorth.
