What’s Up Christchurch Review by Ruth Agnew

Independent Review by Thomas Grey

Repertory brings the hit TV series The Vicar of Dibley to the stage in our first production for 2018. All of your favourite characters from the hugely popular TV series – Alice, Hugo, Owen, Jim, David and, of course, Geraldine, will be onstage to create an evening of laughs.

When the ancient vicar of Dibley dies suddenly, the parishioners are surprised to find that the Bishop has appointed a woman in his place. The hit BBC sitcom busts onto the stage to follow Geraldine as she battles to win over the skeptical parish council and celebrate the wedding of Alice Tinker and Hugo Horton.

Public performance dates: May 9, 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19
All performances 7.30 pm
