Producers and performers greeted local theatre lovers in Dartford yesterday, with a special guest teasing the Dartford crowds.

The Orchard Theatre held its Summer Season Groups and Press launch, and producers of upcoming shows including Jackie The Musical, Buddy the Musical and Sister Act, encouraged groups to come along and watch the growing list of productions gracing the theatre’s stage.

Ahead of his Dartford performance in July, X Factor winner Matt Cardle also appeared on the night, playing two songs to the crowd in the theatre’s restaurant.

With a stellar line up of musicals set to run at the Dartford theatre over the summer, local groups were invited to take advantage of discount deals.

Guests were also invited to the opening night performance of That’s Entertainment, which included special guest performers The Overtones.

Matt Cardle, who has sold more than 2million records across three multi-platinum albums will be performing at the Orchard Theatre on July 19.
