The death of veteran TV star Clive Dunn has been particularly poignant for Newport Playgoers who are currently rehearsing the stage version of ‘Dad’s Army’ at the Dolman Theatre.
Rob Jacobs who plays Corporal Jones, the part made famous by Clive Dunn, said, “Clive was a true TV legend and an inspiration to me. Taking on the role, particularly with the sad news of his death, is even more meaningful.
“I really hope I can do the part justice as a tribute to Clive and his great talent.”
‘Dad’s Army’ is at the Dolman Theatre from 16th – 19th January 2012 at 7.15 pm, with an extra matinee performance on the Saturday at 2.30 pm. To book tickets call 01633 263670 or visit www.dolmantheatre.co.uk.
