Fri, 27 August: Visit to The Sumner Theater Group Cabaret.

The Sumner Theatre Group are putting on a show between 13 August and 3 Sept.
The Sumner Cabaret is a variety show, performed over Friday and Saturday nights for a limited season, during August. This energetic volunteer group of amateur thespians produces a variety cabaret show every year. Singers, dancers, prop-masters, lighting, stage crew and more; all give their time to produce a show that is always “wow - even better than last year!” All funds are returned to the community. Sign-up for this event will be at the July Probus meeting.
The ticket price is $30 per person (the profit goes to Charity). Current thinking is to reserve two tables of 10. You bring your own refreshments.
