IN A change to their original line-up, Chorley Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Society is staging the play Natural Causes this week.

The company had planned to put on Arsenic And Old Lace, but due to casting difficulties changed the schedule.

Natural Causes is a story of poison and mistaken identities from the writer of Rising Damp, and reunites the leading Robin Hood pantomime cast-members Andy Burke and Rachel Brennan as secret lovers caught in the middle of murders and meddlers.

The play opened last night at Chorley Little Theatre and runs until the weekend.

Tickets are available now from Malcolm's Musicland, and all tickets to the previous show are still valid.

CADOS chairman Ian Robinson said: “We hate changing our productions but we have high standards to keep up and this play is better suited to the cast we assembled.

“It’s a similar story to the other play, but is much funnier and brings out the best of this brilliant cast.”

Directed by Paul Carr, it also stars Moyra Cook, Geoff Stevenson, with David Walker as the unwitting assassin.
