Nunsense in Madron

nunsensePenzance Amatuer Operatic Society are performing Nunsense, a musical comedy, at Landithy Hall in Madron on the 14th, 15th and 16th of June. Tickets are £7 each and can be purchased by calling (01736) 363350 or popping into Morrab Studio in Penzance.
Nunsense is a wonderfully funny show. Five of the 19 surviving Little Sisters of Hoboken, a one-time missionary order that ran a leper colony on an island south of France, discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, accidentally killed the other 52 residents of the convent with her tainted vichyssoise while they were off playing bingo with a group of Maryknolls. Come and see what happens next!

An afternoon with Bette and Joan

Today, quite a big group of us went to the Hall for Cornwall to see Bette and Joan, starring the wonderful Greta Scaachi and Anita Dobson. The play was all about Bette Davis and Joan Crawford during their filming of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane and provided some interesting insights into both women’s lives … as well as a lot of good laughs and some VERY RUDE WORDS!
