BUXTON’S talented young actors will be turning their considerable energy and talent to a hilarious case of mistaken identity in their latest production The Government Inspector.

After the huge success of the 2011 productions Animal Farm and Mother Courage, Buxton Opera House’s Kaleidoscope Youth Theatre Company will be performing Gogol’s brilliant comedy at the Pavilion Arts Centre on Friday March 30 and Saturday March 31, at 7.30pm.

And they are asking for the support of the local community as they provide another high-octane performance.

A penniless stranger arrives in a small provincial town and is mistaken for an important government official.

Led by the town mayor the guilt-ridden officials treat the bogus inspector like royalty until he is eventually exposed – making his corrupt and self-serving hosts look extremely foolish.

The Government Inspector aims to entertain with its unlikely, exaggerated and farcical situations, ending with what Gogol perfectly describes as a literal monument to human greed and folly.

Tickets, priced £6.50, are available from the Box Office on 0845 127 2190 or online at
