Mark Holmes and Helen Holmes - who are remarrying

Mark and Helen Holmes got married last July - and now they’re about to do it all again.

This time it will be on the stage at the University Drama Studio in Sheffield.

Mark and Helen, from Norton Lees, are playing the lead roles in Handsworth and Hallam’s summer production of Half a Sixpence.

The couple, who last performed together in the company’s summer 2008 production of The Card as Denry and Ruth, are delighted to be playing opposite each other for the first time since ‘tying the knot’ last year.

Mark, aged 31, said: “I hope I remember all my lines and dance moves as well as I did on my wedding day last year.”

Helen, 28, said she was excited about the show and added: “At least there will not be anywhere near as much stress for this as there was preparing my ‘performance’ last year.”

Half A Sixpence runs from June 21 to 25. Email or call 07586 293546.
