Be on your guard as group set to make fantasy reality
Be on your guard for another fantasy production presented by Scunthorpe's Little Theatre Club.
The group has been busy rehearsing for its take on famed fantasy author Terry Pratchett's story Guards, Guards which will be performed at The Plowright Theatre from October 17 to October 20.
This will be the fourth time the Little Theatre Club has ventured into this much-loved fantasy world.
Having successfully presented three of Stephen Briggs' Terry Pratchett adaptations of the Lancre Witches stories – Wyrd Sisters (2002), Maskerade (2007), and Carpe Jugulum (2009) – they decided to celebrate a different set of favourite characters from Terry Pratchett's prolific imagination.

Speaking about the script, organiser Linda Hankinson said: "Guards, Guards are the once proud Ankh-Morpork City Night Watch, which has been reduced to just three men. Cautious, cowardly Fred Colon (played by Robin Poole) is the desk sergeant who communicates with his wife through notes left on the kitchen table and weasely Nobby Nobbs (Lee Watson) carries documents to prove he is actually human.
"They are led by Captain Vimes (club chairman Matt Smith), whose ideals of upholding the law in the city he loves have been slowly crushed, leaving him a drunken cynic."
The story follows the journey of two new arrivals – new recruit Carrot Ironfoundersson (Damien Hallwood), human by birth but dwarf by upbringing, and a large, angry, fire-breathing dragon – who upset their comfortable rut.
Mrs Hankinson said: "With the city of Ankh-Morpork in chaos as the dragon wreaks destruction and only an orangutan hunting for a stolen book and dragon-loving Lady Sybil to help, it falls to this sorry band of misfits to save the day."
