Talented performers are being summoned to join a variety show that has been on the road for 38 years.

Dancers, singers and magicians will tour Essex and London with Cab-hoo-ray Variety Entertainments, but owner John Dudman is looking for more talent from Havering to join for the ride.

John, who is in his eighties, said: “It’s giving the community something and it’s all about fun.

“I need youngsters or aged people who can play or dance or entertain.”

The acts tour sheltered accommodation, providing entertainment for the elderly.

John said: “I’ve made hundreds of friends doing it. I was dancing with youngsters in the ’80s and they still ring me up now and they’re older with children. Some have gone into the entertainment profession.

“We’ve got a first-class magic act at the moment who belongs to the Magic Circle. We’ve got singers too, but we want additional people to make it even better.”

Prospective performers must audition for John before they can join the tour. “Come and show me what you can do,” he said.
