 Dear Members and Friends,

 

We enjoyed a great evening in September, with 38 people enjoying the performances and Terry’s great meal ! Eour of those who attended were friends of members and 2 more were holiday makers who belong to a similar group in England ! They were thrilled to read about us in the free Press and are planning to visit us again.

 

Our next Thespa evening is on Wednesday 31st  October

Masonic Hall, Edificio Bougainvillea, Los Boliches at 7.30 p.m

 

We look forward to seeing you.

“A Night under Canvas” written by Lisa Hunt & directed by Janet Gillett and

“The Pleasure of your company” written by Cherry Vooght & directed by Shirley Knauf

  

MEAL MENU - TBA

 

As usual we are eagerly anticipating the performances as well as the meal in the “Interval”
