The comic opera Iolanthe is being staged in Clevedon next month.
It is all about how the Lord Chancellor and the House of Lords have all fallen in love with his ward Phyllis.
But Phyllis is in love with a shepherd called Strephon who it turns out to be half-a-fairy - in the old-fashioned meaning of the word!
Strephon's lively fairy mother Iolanthe is the Chancellor's thought-to-be-dead wife.
So who will marry who?
And can Iolanthe get her son happily hitched without risking death by revealing to the Chancellor she is still alive and that Strephon is his son?
Some wonderful music and at last an idea of how to reform the House of Lords!
The show runs at the Community Centre for four nights with curtain up at 7.30pm.
For tickets at £9, concessions £8 and under 18s £5 call the box office on 01275 874651
