Classic folk tale brought to club’s stage
A CLASSIC tale with humour and music will be brought to the stage later this month when the Australind and Districts Senior Citizens Club performance of Cinderella opens.
Performing the second show for the year, the cast of 20 will be performing three matinees and a dinner show at the club with meals included.
Director and scriptwriter Eileen Depiazzi said she had been involved in club productions for eight years and had always wanted to do Cinderella.
“It’s quite a comedy, they really get their teeth into that and re- ally play up which they’re quite enjoying,” she said.
“It’s also got some lovely songs in there.
“It’s a family show, not just for seniors, we want everybody to come and enjoy.”
Ms Depiazzi said the club had previously performed Singing in the Rain, Robin Hood and Happy Days.
As well as the fun of performing, Ms Depiazzi said the show also raised money for future club activities.
“It helps the club financially as well for outings and things we can give our members more to do,” she said. “We have many activities here and this is just one of them.”
Volunteers have been involved in all facets of production with costumes made by Kay Hoare, singing directed by Kath Evans and Lyndon Edwards on piano.
Matinee performances will be at 2pm on November 12, 14 and 19 with tickets $15 and afternoon tea included.
The special dinner show will be on November 18 at 5pm with tickets $25.
