  1. I thought Peter Beadle gave a superb performance.
    Worth the price of a ticket.
    Rest of the cast were pretty good as well

  2. It was a joke ?

  3. Was a professional actor for many years but health issues have presented me from further shows at the Brookside Theatre with my dear friends Jai & Harri Sepple. Hoping to return in 2024.
