Clas­sic folk tale brought to club’s stage

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - REPORTER NEWS -

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.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to book con­tact the club on 9725 8998.
