Curtains up as a new window opens on Droylsden’s world

An empty shop window has been creating a buzz in the heart of Droylsden thanks to artistic members of the community.
Officially known as Unit 14, of Queens Walk, the shop window has been treating recent passers-by to a scene from the Droylsden Little Theatre’s recent production of ‘Blithe Spirit’, as reviewed last week.
The unit previously showcased a nativity scene after students of St Mary’s School were invited to come up with their best efforts, of which it seems they ‘easelly’ did (as pictured).
But with the Christmas season now a distant memory, the theatre – just off Market Street – stepped in to fill the vacant window.
Blithe Spirit, written originally by Noel Coward, ran at the theatre between January 20 and 25 and told the tale of Charles Condomine’s dalliance with a medium.
Feedback regarding the innovative use of the building has so far been positive with a large number of people even asking when the clairvoyant is due to open!
With the play’s run having now finished, the theatre plans to change the display to promote its next production Family Circles.
The Little Theatre’s play goes on between March 17 and 22 and is a play about marriage.
