The World Premier of The Helena Rubinstein Story, "Powder and Paint", which has its first ever performance in Crediton, is a complete sell out. All four performances from Wednesday through to Saturday are now full. As ticket agents for Crediton Operatic and Drama Society (CODS), we at Olivia James Design have been amazed by the response from the puplic for tickets for a brand new production. "CODS always put on a very professional show and we know this will be no exception" I already have a waiting list for any returns. Can't wait to see the reviews. Break a leg guys. Danny

The overwhelming response from the opening night audience was a feeling that we were in the privileged position of...
