Bachelors, widows and busybodies strive to entertain

Manning Valley Choral Society (MVCS) is heading back to the Great Lakes with ‘Tea and Tragedy’, an original story enacted as a live radio play. 

Created by life member Geraldine Mullin, author and director of  former productions such as 'Black Coffee', 'Full Moon' and Wild Weather', the plot reveals a plethora of men and women who embrace wide and varying personalities, caught up in the whirlwind of communal living. The neighbourhood busybody, the recently widowed newcomer, the aging bachelor, the 'mutton dressed as lamb', the snobbish retiree, the forgetful individual, the former performers in their twilight years, and the eccentric, all combine in an hilarious tale about life, people and a good cup of tea. 

Accompanying the story are much loved songs, beautifully arranged and harmonised by a choir of thirty. Such favourites as Who?, Manhattan, Life Upon the Wicked Stage, Stars Get in Your Eyes, Blue Moon and My Funny Valentine, all written by the prolific Hart, Rodgers and Kern are enhanced by the extraordinary talents of the group’s resident pianist, Joan Saxby.  

'Tea and Tragedy' will leave audiences with a smile from ear to ear.

Tickets for the performance at Tuncurry Bowling Club on Sunday September 25, 2pm, can be purchased at the venue. Adults $10, concessions and children over $8, family $20, and children under 6 Free. For more information, contact the Secretary, 6553 9561
