CHRISTMAS will come early at Johnstone Town Hall this week as a popular drama group stages its latest panto.

St Paul’s Church Dramatic Society will be performing Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, with the first show taking place tonight and the run continuing until Saturday.

The show is based on the 1950s film of the same name, which follows the adventures of American soldiers Bob Wallace and Phil Davis.

After the Second World War ends, the pair make it big in the world of entertainment and, when they are asked to look at a show by the two sisters of their former mess sergeant, they fall for the two girls.

Linda Rae, secretary of St Paul’s Church Dramatic Society, said: “I am very much looking forward to these performances. We have a very strong cast of excellent principals and chorus.

“There are some lovely songs, including White Christmas and Let Yourself Go.

“Leah Smith is playing the role of Betty Haynes and Gillian Colquhoun is playing her sister Judy.

“Paul McWilliams and Craig Inglis play the loveable Bob Wallace and Phil Davis.

“Please come along and see this great show.”

Performances take place at 7.30pm tonight, tomorrow, Friday and Saturday.

There will also be a 2.30pm matinee performance on Saturday for those who prefer to head along in the afternoon.

Tickets cost £12 for adults and £10 for children and concessions.
