THE POPULAR Gainsborough Amateur Operatic Society (GAOS) is gearing up to put on a new show - and YOU can be a part of it.

GAOS is looking to recruit more members to take part in its next production: The Pajama Game.

After the success of last year’s show Me and My Girl, GAOS has taken on another all singing, all dancing show to get their teeth into.

The Pajama Game is set in America in the 1950s.

A GAOS spokesman said: “The dangers of a workplace romance are explored to hysterical effect in this romantic musical comedy.”

“Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pyjama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance committee.”

“Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a seven-and-a-half per cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labour, but a battle of the sexes as well.”

He continued: “The show is so full of musical numbers that you’ll go away humming, including Racing With The Clock, I’m Not At All In Love, Once-A-Year Day, Steam Heat and Hernando’s Hideaway.”

The Gainsborough Amateur Operatic Society rehearses at the Park Springs Community Centre, on Park Springs Road, in Gainsborough, on Tuesday nights from 7.30–9.30pm.

The spokesman added: “Everyone over the age of 14 is welcome to come and join our friendly society, so if you like singing and dancing or would like to help back stage please come along and see what we do.”

The Pyjama Game is being performed at the Trinity Arts Centre, 23rd – 27th April.
