SOUTHEND Scout Group joined forces with Dunaverty Players to present An Unexpected Night of Drama in Dunaverty Hall.

The players opened with a hilarious sketch called Look Away Now with David Barbour, John Bakes and John Ives as three gents taking their seats on the airplane and totally ignoring the safety announcements from stewardess Susan Paterson.

As the sketch proceeded it soon became apparent that this was not a normal announcement, as instructions were given on how to take off items such as undergarments.

No pudding
Finally it was announced that meals were to be served, however as David had peeked he would get no pudding.

The Scouts then took over with Craig Barbour, Ruairi Barbour, Melissa Chambers, Matthew Ferguson, Daniel Hughes, James Ives, Caitlin Russell and the leaders entertaining with sketches, including one from the repertoire of the Two Ronnies entitled Nuts My Lord, doctor jokes and musical items.

The evening was finished off with a performance of Unexpected Item In

The Bagging Area by Dunaverty Players.
This was their entry into the recent drama festival and featured Patricia Healey, Susan Paterson, Elizabeth Barbour and Heather Mcadam.

Till rage
The play concentrated on a supermarket’s self-service tills and a customer experiencing till rage.

Thanks to the very generous audience the Scouts and Dunaverty Players both raised much needed funds of £100 each.
