Bay Theatre Players' "Guys & Dolls" a true delight and not to be missed
Bay Theatre Players' "Guys & Dolls" has played to some full houses and appreciative audiences over the past week.
The Beagle competition to win a ticket to "Guys & Dolls" was drawn last week and the winners enjoyed the Thursday night performance.
On Sunday, two charitable organisations combined to work together to the benefit of both. Bay Theatre Players Inc, a not-for-profit community theatre and a registered charity in its own right, joined with Operation Christmas Child to hold a 'fund-raiser' matinee. Both organisations were delighted to host a full house of people who had a great day out while supporting both charities. Patrons enjoyed pre-show nibblies and a delightful 'Devonshire' afternoon tea in addition to the well-received performance of "Guys & Dolls".

The Operation Christmas Child organisers also conducted a raffle which was drawn at the end of the show. This was just one of six fund-raiser performances organized by Bay Theatre Players' Viv Wheatley, pictured here hard at work in the theatre preparing for another eager audience. Also pictured is program-seller Sharon Mitchell, Operation Christmas Child organisers Pauline Brook and Liz Fisher and raffle-ticket sellers Bev Stephens and Margot Knight.
A couple of the remaining seven shows are booked out, and others have limited seats available, so if you wish to see 'Guys & Dolls' book now at www.trybooking.com/YAUP - the final show is at 7:30pm on Saturday 1 December.
