Red Faces

Sat 10 Sep 2016 7pm

Red Faces is our annual deep well of embarrassment. Come prepared to show, like a limbo dancer, how low you can go!

It's at St Margaret's church hall, bring food to share and BYO drink, tea and coffee provided.

Doors open 7pm, show starts 7:30pm, break half way through for supper.

Cost $5, or $7 for a family, and performers also have to pay.

If you're performing, let Leone know at least a week beforehand. She needs to know the title of the act, the names of the performers, sound system requirements and set-up needs, and the duration of the performance. And we'd like any recordings to be used in your performance at least a week in advance.
