Swan Lake as you’ve never see it before will be performed in a special show to celebrate Scarborough Samaritan’s 40th anniversary.

Each year the Samaritans stage an annual variety show to help raise the £30,000 a year they ned to offer listening services in Scarborough and the surrounding area.

In its anniversary year the charity will be putting on its show for 2012 entitled A Night to Remember, which will be performed at the YMCA Theatre, in St Thomas Street on September 14 and 15 from 7pm.

Hotelier Malcolm Harper of the Raincliffe Hotel in Valley Road together with Stuart Large have joined forces to present ‘Imperfection’ which is a comedy take-off of the dying swan in Swan Lake.

The pair are now strangers to show business with Mr Harper winning Channel 4’s ‘Three in a Bed’ and auditioning for Britian’s Got Talent, while Mr Large appeared in a Phoenix Drama Group Agatha Christie production.

Dorree Gallie, a deputy director of Scarborough Samaritans said: “This is a very entertaining contemporary piece of dance.

“If you want to have a good laugh, see Malcolm dressed in a tutu and lilac tights, and help a good cause, then please be sure to get your tickets booked early.

“Malcolm has also had some pink satin frilly knickers specially made for him plus some knitted ballet shoes so he does look a real picture.”

Mr Harper and Mr Large are both looking for sponsorship to help the fundraising efforts even more.

If you would like to sponsor either or both, forms are available at the Toy Shop, St Thomas Street and The Raincliffe Hotel in Valley Road.

Mrs Gallie added: “A Night to Remember promises to be bigger and better than ever this year, there really is something for everyone with lots of local talent taking part and doing their bit voluntarily for Samaritans. Do please come along and enjoy A Night to Remember.

Tickets cost £7.00 and £6.00 for concessions and are on sale now from the YMCA.
