Cast members of Neath play burgled while on stage
POLICE are appealing for information after cast members of a popular play were burgled while they performed in Neath.
Members of Neath Amateur Operatic Society were performing their Saturday matinee show of Calendar Girls at the weekend, when they had money, make up and a mobile phone stolen.
The production was held at the town's Gwyn Hall from September 18 to 21 and tells the story of a women's institute group who pose nude for a calendar to raise money for a cancer charity.
During the first half of the play, which began at 2.15pm on Saturday afternoon, two people are believed to have gained access to the cast's dressing room while they were all on stage.
Society secretary, Kerry Jones, who was also performing in the play, said: "We were all on stage at the time, during the first half.
"There's two dressing rooms and at the time, two people - a man and a woman - went into one of the dressing rooms and locked the door behind them.
"They took a total of £120 worth of cash, a mobile phone belonging to one of the cast - it had all her photos and telephone numbers on it and my make up."
A spokesman for South Wales Police said: "We can confirm there was a burglary at the Gwyn Hall at around 2.30pm on September 21, when people got into to the changing rooms and a quantity of cash was stolen from cast members."
Anyone with information should contact police on 101.
