The show is packed with drama, humour and wonderful Cole Porter music including 'Brush Up Your Shakespeare' and of course, the title tune.

'It's Too Darn Hot' is the big dance number, choreographed by Sarah Aitken and a young team of dancers fresh from the Edinburgh production of 'Footloose'.

The show is produced by Eloner Crawford with musical director, Mike Hardy and features Euan McIver in the leading role of Fred/Petruchio, playing opposite Alex Watson as Lilli/Kate in her first major role with the society.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the society's first show, 'Lilac Domino' and it is also a special year for another reason - 'Kiss Me Kate' will be the first time the Easter show takes place at the new Berwickshire High School.

To reassure everyone who found the seats a little hard when they watched the society's pantomime, 'Cinderella', in November, there will be cushions on the seats - and teas and coffees at the interval!

'Kiss Me, Kate' will be on stage at the High School from Wednesday, April 7- Saturday, April 10.

Tickets are available from Number 18, Market Square, priced 8, with concessions for groups, pensioners and students and for everyone at the Wednesday performance.

A souvenir jubilee programme to mark the society's 50 years in showbusiness, priced at 2.50, will be on sale before and during the show.
