It's A Farce

What: Don't Dress for Dinner
Where: Civic Theatre
When: Wednesday May 10, 2000

DON'T DRESS FOR DINNER, a new farce opens at the Newcastle Civic Theatre on Wednesday, May 10. The action revolves around a dinner party where everyone is at pains to hide who is 'intimate' with whom. In Perth the season starring JON ENGLISH (ALL TOGETHER NOW, PIRATES OF PENZANCE), DENNIS WATERMAN (THE SWEENY, MINDER), SUE HODGE (ALLO ALLO)and TOTTIE GOLDSMITH (SEX LIFE/CHANTOOZIES), has been a sell out. TE has two double passes to the show to give away. To go in the draw mail an envelope, with your name, address and telephone number on the back, to DON'T DRESS FOR DINNER GIVEAWAY, PO Box 615, Newcastle, 2300. Or enter on-line at www.nnp.com.au TE
