An Adult Show

Last night we went along to Geraghty Park Hall for the "sold out" Julatten Little Theatre Group annual Dinner Show. What a great night of laughs!  We started the night with a smorgasbord dinner that was really delicious with lots of interesting salads as well as the typical hot dishes of curry's and rice.  I stayed with the salads.  The dessert table was equally spectacular and tantalising.  I decided on a gluten free, dairy free chocolate peppermint slice.

Once the 200 theatre goers were all feed and seated the show began.  We were taken inside radio station QBC where a "Dad and Dave" style show was being recorded.  It was hilarious and made even more so by the sound man/lady who had to make the sound of footsteps, drinks being poured etc etc.  Of course nothing went as planned.

After the play we had a 20 minute interval to refresh our drinks and make toilet stops.  Once we were all seated again the second part of the show began.
This was a series of skits depicting well know singers.  We were crooned by Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton, The Village People, Elvis Presley, Sonny & Cher, just to name a few.

The whole show was fantastic and was more so because, apart from the laughs, it was very obvious that the performers were enjoying themselves immensely.  I could never get up on stage and perform and I really do admire those that can.
The show was very well received by the audience and I'm sure that it will not be the last.  Oh yes, and all the proceeds went to local charities.  How good is that!  Well done Julatten Little Theatre Group.
