Jondaryan Community will be performing Don’t Dress for Dinner on June 10 and 11, to raise money for local charity Blush Cancer. Blush Cancer is a Toowoomba organisation formed to raise funds to support breast cancer patients from across the Darling Downs.
Blush believes that while funding is essential for ongoing research, supporting cancer patients is equally important. The Charity delivers their services via three Toowoomba Private Hospital Breast Care Nurses, who help patients to achieve a healthier lifestyle through education, as well as practical and emotional support. These Nurses are located at St Andrew’s Toowoomba Hospital as well as St Vincent’s Private Hospital.
Pyjama Pour Six, performed on June 3 and 4, attracted a crowd of around 300 people raising funds for the charity. Don’t Dress for Dinner hopes to gather an audience of over 700 from across South East Queensland. Set in a French style farmhouse near Paris, this amusing local success story is directed by Cheryl Steel, while her husband Peter occupies the lead role as Bernard. He is seen romancing his secret mistress, Suzanne, played by Karen Smith. The story gets complicated when Bernard’s friend Robert, played by Brendan McComack comes to the farmhouse as he is in a relationship with Bernard’s wife, played by Joy Schmidt. This confusion leads to a witty and hilarious turn of events and exposes the marital deceit in an amusing manner.
Theatre Dinner Performances will be held on June 10 – 11 and June 17 – 18 at the Jondaryan Hall. There are raffle prizes on offer too. All funds collected will go to Blush Cancer Care.
Tickets can be purchased by contacting Trish on 46915247 or on her mobile, 0458208803 or by emailing email@example.com.
