A theatre company which reformed to host events in aid of charity will take to the stage this weekend.
Limelight Theatre Company will be putting on a production of popular musical Sister Act.
Proceeds from the show are to be donated to causes close to members of the group’s hearts – having raised more than £40,000 in the past five years.
The theatre company had ceased performing more than 13 years ago, but reformed in 2012 and have put on regular shows ever since.
This year’s sell-out performances will take place tomorrow and Monday at Aberdeen Arts Centre.
Nikki Dunn, from Torry, is involved in the arranging of the shows and the ticket sales. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, and given the all-clear in 2012.
Two other people taking part in the production have also been affected by breast cancer and wanted to give something back to the people who have helped them.
The 52-year-old said: “We did shows more than 20 years ago.
“I got back in touch on Facebook in 2012, which was my five years all clear from breast cancer. We’re doing a full musical, it’s the first time we’ve done one in many years. We usually do reviews, so this one is a bit more challenging. It’s a favourite amongst a lot of us.”
The company raises money primarily for the University of Aberdeen head of medicine, consultant Professor Steven Heys, to conduct major research into breast cancer.
Professor Heys is also included in the show. He will be giving a speech about breast cancer at the end of the show and will explain what the money raised will go towards.
The group also fundraises for Friends of Anchor.
The charity helps cancer and haematology patients from Aberdeenshire, Orkney and Shetland at the ANCHOR unit at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
Nikki said: “It’s great. We’ve got a good following. This year we have a lot more to pay for but any ticket sales once we’ve paid everything back will all go towards charity.”
She added: “We’re really excited and quite nervous.”
