NAILSEA residents are being offered the chance to learn more about how the town's Little Theatre brings a concept to life.

The theatre, which will be celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, will invite residents backstage on Saturday, May 20, from 2pm until 5pm.

Locals will be able to chat to the volunteers that work tirelessly to ensure shows run smoothly, as well as see where its three yearly shows (plus visiting performances) are put together.

Refreshments in the form of tea and cake are also on offer.

The open afternoon comes as the theatre prepares for the final show of its 2022/23 season, called 'Ladies Down Under'. The Isobel Williams production will be running from Monday, June 5 until Saturday, June 10.

If you wish to find out more or fancy buying a ticket, please visit the Little Theatre website or phone 0777 298 1037.
