A HAMPSHIRE youth theatre group are preparing to hit the stage later this month with their latest production - and one night is already a sell out.

It’s 1927 and Daisy Meredith is the first scholarship girl taken from an elementary school to be allowed access to the hallowed halls of Grangewood School for Young Ladies.

That is the plot of Daisy Pulls It Off, the latest offering from Hamble Players Youth Theatre.

Enthusiastic and plucky to the last, Daisy finds herself struggling against unspeakable snobs Sybil and Monica and their ghastly schemes to get her expelled.

Ably assisted by her new best friend, madcap and self styled poet, Trixie Martin, Daisy finds herself caught up in a series of irresistible adventures including the search for missing treasure.

Can they work out the mysterious clues and save the school from closure?

Or will they be beaten by the enigmatic Mr Scoblowski?

Director Fay Rusling is a well known TV writer for BAFTA and Emmy award winning shows such as Green Wing, Smack the Pony, and Brief Encounters.

Fay grew up in Hamble, and was inspired by Hamble Players as a young girl to want be on the stage.

She now volunteers with Hamble Players Youth Theatre to inspire the next generation.

After her mum took her to see the first performance of Daisy Pulls it Off at the Nuffield Theatre in Southampton, she is excited to bring it to the stage in Hamble.

The group started in 2015 and their previous shows include Midsummer Night’s Dream, Blue Stockings and Pride and Prejudice.

Opening night on Friday July 12 is a complete sell out.

But tickets are available for the remainder of the run until Sunday July 14 at Hamble Village Memorial Hall.
