A WOMAN'S dream will become a reality next Wednesday (April 30), when her musical takes to the stage for the first time.

Mmm Mmm The Musical has been written by Katrina Mason from Gorefield and runs at the Angles Theatre in Wisbech from Wednesday until Saturday May 3.

The 15-strong cast have been busy preparing for the performances, with rehearsals four times per week at Gorefield Village Hall and the College of West Anglia's Isle Campus in Wisbech.

Mrs Mason wrote the script and song lyrics about three years ago, with help from her husband Phill and friend Ross Griggs with the music.

Mrs Mason said: "It will be the first totally original musical to premiere at the Angles. Everyone I know linked to the Angles cannot think of another which has premiered in the theatre's history."

The play centres around three couples who meet at Mmm Mmm, a French restaurant, brimming with exciting news to tell each other. However, staff include three alcoholic chefs, dancing waitresses and a flirtatious maitre d' and add some twists to the menu.

# Performances start at 7.30pm each evening except for next Thursday, which starts at 8.30pm. Tickets cost £10 each and are available from the Angles box office on 01945 474447.
