The show will go on de­spite fi­nan­cial woes

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

A FULL-HOUSE of glitz and glam­our is an­tic­i­pated for the an­nounce­ment of Monto’s Miss Show­girl on Satur­day night.

Donna Baker, who was awarded Miss Show­girl Queens­land 2013, would hand over her crown at the of­fi­cial din­ner at Monto’s Café De­li­cious, Monto Show So­ci­ety spokesman Beryl Avis said.

To en­cour­age com­mu­nity at­ten­dance, ticket prices were dropped by about $20 af­ter the en­ter­tain­ment was can­celled, Ms Avis said.

The show so­ci­ety can­celled the Foot­lights Theatre Restau­rant troupe as not enough tick­ets were sold.

“We’re in drought and fi­nances are tight,” she ex­plained.

Ms Avis said the troupe was booked for this year’s Miss Show­girl din­ner af­ter they wowed a crowd of 220 people in Monto about five years ago.

Ms Avis praised the com­mu­nity’s gen­er­ous sup­port from do­na­tions to their pres­ence at the Monto Show.
