Scarborough Community Choir with the Sandside Orchestra and Frank James will be performing at Westborough Methodist Church on Saturday March 12 at 7pm.

The second half of the concert will consist of a staged performance of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Trial by Jury with local soloists, including Tim Tubbs as the judge, Lesley Machen as Angelina (the plaintiff) and Hilary Watts as Edwin (the defendant).

Members of the choir will take the parts of Bridesmaids and the Jury. Hilary Watts and Chris Gray are solicitors, Tim Tubbs’ brother is a solicitor and Bill Scott’s wife, Anita, is also a solicitor so the legal profession is well represented.
