Twenty Club to stage classic Vicar of Dibley show

The Twenty Club drama group  of Llangollen are well into their rehearsals for the iconic Vicar of Dibley play, having performed a different selection of episodes some years ago. 

This much-awaited second series includes Dibley on Air and the Second Coming, in which the Dibley nativity play with a difference goes all rather wrong. 

According to director Chrissie Ashworth, the cast are enthusiastic and hard working and aiming to provide lots of laughs and good humour on the way.  

She said set building is going on apace and the club is applying its usual attention to detail to ensure that everything is spot-on and in keeping with late 1990s/2000 period in which the show is set. 

"Everybody loved the warm-hearted, vivacious vicar and her unworldly yet lovable verger," explained Chrissie, "and the actors are really stepping up to the mark, making sure that they are as close to the original characters as possible. 

"Who can help but have a soft spot for the likes of Jim (no no no no), the unkempt sex-starved farmer Owen, the precise boring Frank who harbours a wistful secret, mad Mrs Cropley with her offerings of unusual combinations in her bakes, the lovable simplistic Hugo with his overbearing father David complemented by Geraldine Grainger the Vicar and her adorable verger Alice Tinker.

"They are all her just waiting to entertain you, so do make a note in your diary and come along.  A good time with non stop laughter guaranteed."

The Vicar of Dibley will be staged at Llangollen Town Hall from Wednesday November 16t Saturday November 19 at 7.30pm with a matinee on the Saturday at 2.30 pm.

Stage play is by Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter adapted from the original TV series by Richard Curtiss and Paul Mayhew-Archer with kind permission of Tiger Aspect Productions. 

* Tickets  - £12 and £10 concessions - are available online at: or from Courtyard Books, Llangollen Oggie Shop or Jenni in Market Street. Tickets also available from cast and crew members, and at the door, subject to availability.
