Bethan, who was also a familiar face on the wards in Clatterbridge as a request collector, was treading the boards at the Childwall Valley Community Theatre and the Gregson Memorial Institute in Liverpool.

The adaptation of the famous Robert Louis Stevenson story saw the Valley Players set the story in the 1960s.

Bethan's portrayal of Mrs Poole, Dr Jekyll's housekeeper, had everyone "in fits of laughter", according to one review.

Presenters Dave Adams and June Wood were amongst those enjoying the play in the audience.

The play will receive its curtain call after performances in Liverpool's Lantern Theatre on 18th and 19th January 2016.
