Cribbies: Act Two

As the second act of Cribbies begins, Mrs Smith, Mrs Brown and Mrs Evans each bring a plate to the New Year's Eve party.

"There's an old piano and they play it hot, behind the Green Door" - the cast get into the dance moves. L-r: Caitlin Sexton; Marlene Polson; Trish White; Marion Patton

Alf and Rob stagger back from the pub, which "closed up at 6 o' clock."

Cynthia and Norman Smith listen to one of Rob's terrible jokes.

The ladies are equally unimpressed...

Mrs Tobin (Shirley Armitage) asks Alf if he has a variety of drinks, including a cold duck - he's got one "hanging in the wash house".

Mrs Tobin leads the cast in a dance to Shake, Rattle and Roll.

Mrs Brown is delighted with the news that Princess Margaret is engaged, "I'm so glad for the poor thing... I'll just have a little sherry to celebrate."

The ladies of the cast sing that Everybody Loves a Lover.

It appears that they're right - even Wendy and Davey (Nick Foley) get in on the act, dancing to Oh, Boy!

Constable Ogilvie breaks up the party with a jar of Gran's plum jam, which may conceal a nugget of gold.

Gran is concerned that she may be in trouble - "I haven't done anything wrong have I?"

Wendy and Sophie get into the Hoki Toki ' "that's what it's all about".

Mrs Tobin asks Merve (Thomas Brinsley) whether he has tractor oil in his hair. - apparently not; "It's Brylcream. Elvis uses it you know."

Merve shows Mrs Tobin some dance moves to The Twist and soon everybody joins in.

Everybody celebrates New Year as the piper plays Auld Lang Syne.

Rob leads the cast as they farewell the decade with The Fifties, They Are Over.

The cast are ready to do it all over again as they perform the encore - Rock Around the Clock
