New theatre company has a mission

Front: Jerry Granger-Holcombe and Jean Ogilvie Back: Terry Beavan, Jim Hinchcliff, Rachel Piggott, Ken Jeffery and Roshell Williams

The Kiama Matinee Theatre has been established to provide daytime, low cost theatrical entertainment while raising funds for local charities. The brain-child of local playwright Ken Methold and actor/director Veronica Dzelde, the troupe is planning three shows a year.

The first play is inspired by the favourite TV shows Downton Abbey, Upstairs Downstairs, Midsummer Murders and the Miss Marple stories.

Entitled Murder Upstairs Downstairs at Upton Priory, the play promises to be a riot from start to finish.

All proceeds will go to the Kiama Lions Club’s Community Carers Respite Cottage in Shoalhaven Street, where the cast is pictured.

Details: 14-16 March, Kiama Uniting Church Fellowship Centre, 46 Manning St, 2.30pm (plus 6pm on the 14th). Bookings essential. Tickets from Jennie’s Book Nook (4232 3344) in the Centrepoint Arcade, Terralong Street. Tickets $20 each or $15 for groups.
