Last show of Showstoppers Cabaret Club. Opinion

THEY say all good things must come to an end… well, it certainly does in Mandurah.

This month sees the end of an era that has provided our community with the unique entertainment talents of Showstoppers Cabaret Club.

Last Friday evening, together with a group of 10 friends, I saw their latest and sadly their last production, The Final Countdown, at the Nellie Regan Hall.

As usual, from the moment the curtain opened, right through to the grand finale, the audience was transported to a world of fun-filled and vibrant energy that was the music of the baby boomer era.

The costumes designs were as spectacular as ever, thanks to the amazing talent of its costume director Julia Beard.

The dance routines were challenging, achievable, energetic and highly visual thanks to the efforts of its dance director Daisy Luck and the entire thing was put together and held together with the precise professionalism and creative genius of its artistic director and local entertainer Phil Inn.

Like many other local people, I have seen every one of their six annual shows and know that this is going to be one hard act to follow and doubt if Mandurah will ever get such an opportunity as this again.

If you have never seen one of their shows, all I can do is urge you to do so while you still have a chance.

The very last show will be on Friday, November 27, at 7pm.

This is a very special celebratory performance, the proceeds of which will be dedicated to the homeless and needy of your own community and I for one will be there to say thanks and goodbye.

You can still get tickets for that performance and I’m told there are still a few left for other Friday nights and Saturday afternoons.
