Jimmy Cricket is getting help from a theatre stalwart as preparations are stepped up for his new musical in the autumn.
And a vital member of Jimmy’s team is Eric Nolan who runs the Blackburn Drama Club and produces four plays a year at the theatre.
He also presents plays at the Library Theatre in Darwen and last year produced one on the Indian icon, Ghandi.
Well-known entertainer Jimmy said: “Eric is a great advocate for the Thwaites Empire Theatre and helps raise loads of funds to keep the theatre going.
“I am looking forward to working with Eric on my show.”
