The Cat and the Canary is baffling audiences with creepy goings-on and red herrings at Malvern Theatres for a week until February 22.
Headlining is former Bond girl Britt Ekland, still beguiling but much older than her glory days in The Man with the Golden Gun and The Wicker Man. There's also the distinguished stage talent of Marti Webb of Evita fame.
Providing the glamour now is former Coronation Street actress Tracy Shaw, who is joined by a range of sitcom stars like Gary Webster from Minder, Mark Jordon from Emmerdale, Eric Carte of Bouquet of Barbed Wire and regular with the Theatre Company, Ben Nealon from Soldier Soldier.
