MANDURAH MLA David Templeman will be putting all political correctness aside when he explodes onto stage as Michael Flatulence, Lord of the Prance, as the headline act in A Mediaeval Romp at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre next month.

Some of the dancers are still in quarantine on Christmas Island but should be cleared to travel in time for Cheap and Dodgy Production’s latest annual show.

Mr Flatulence, who is recovering from a significant groin injury and his sixth divorce, said he understood Mandurah was a veritable hotbed of women.

“My recent divorce was deflating so I am looking forward to finding love in your beautiful city,’’ he said.

Mr Flatulence and dancer Patrick Fitzmichael (Geri Jones) recently joined patrons at Murphy’s Irish Pub in preparation for their stage debut.

“We want to embed ourselves in Mandurah before the big performance (Sunday, December 6, 2pm and 7.30pm and Monday (7.30pm) and I’m on the lookout for a local lady who might be free,’’ he said.

Tickets are on sale at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre, $20 adult, $15 children under 16 and tickets for the first two shows are almost sold out.

All proceeds go towards the Lesley Couzens Performing Arts Fellowship to support young people embarking on a career in the performing arts.
