WICK Theatre Company’s next production is a riotous and affectionate parody of a classic girls’ adventure story.

Set in 1927, Daisy Pulls It Off centres on super achiever Daisy Meredith, the first scholarship pupil from an elementary school to be allowed access to the hallowed halls of Grangewood School for Young Ladies.

Press officer Judith Berrill said: “Daisy finds herself struggling fearlessly to be accepted against unutterable snobs Sybil and Monica and their frightful schemes to get her expelled.

“With her new best friend, madcap Trixie Martin, Daisy finds herself caught up in a series of harum scarum adventures including the search for missing treasure.”

Talented drama teacher Diane Robinson directs the cast of 15.

Sophie Lane takes the role of Daisy, having given some outstanding performances since joining Young Wick as a teenager in 2005. This will be her last show before she and Wick partner Tom move to live and work in Mauritius.

Performances run from Wednesday to next Saturday at the Barn Theatre, Southwick Street, Southwick, at 7.45pm. Tickets £11 from the box office on 01273 597094.
