Meeting Notice – ESC HYGM March 22 at 7:00 pm

All members are invited to attend our half yearly meeting to inform members on how the club is going mid-way through the season, and it’s future direction.

The committee has established a strategy and plan for the club’s future, incorporating the member feedback provided in last year’s questionnaire.

The meeting will also include a Q&A session with the General Committee on general club topics.

The meeting is expected to take 1-1/2 hours, and the bar will be open.

The National Theatre St Kilda and CLOC musical theatre company are performing ‘Kinky Boots’ for a very limited run of two weeks starting May 17th. Kinky boots is a marvellous movie, the music and lyrics for the musical adaptation are by Cyndi Lauper.

Cloc’s two annual performances are unfailingly professional. Previous shows include Wicked, Jeckyll and Hyde, Les Miserables, Jesus Christ superstar to name just a few. As a volunteer for the group (front of house ushering duties) I have secured a group booking of tickets at a discounted price, $48 each, for a 2pm matinee performance on Sunday 19th May. Even at this early stage ticket availability was very limited. Any ESC members are invited to come on 19th May,  first in best dressed as far as ticket allocation goes. 

Early bird tickets are still available online from cloc.org.au for anyone who can’t make this date. 

If you would like a discounted ticket for what is going to be a very enjoyable performance, please contact Helen Whiston on 0433965602 or email helenfw2001@yahoo.co.uk
