THE latest production at Rockingham Theatre Ladies Night was a crowd puller.
The action is based around Lipsticks Night Club, where seven unemployed young men try hard to earn a few dollars to help with household debts, but times are hard and tempers get more than a little frayed with minor setbacks.
After seeing the crowds drawn to the club when a professional strip team is hired, the lads realise that they have the same assets but perhaps not quite the same shape, but they come to believe that if they form a team and work together, with a bit of help, they too could be earning buckets of money.
An exotic dancer is hired to try and teach them that what their egos are telling them to do on stage, is not what their audiences will want to pay to see.
Opening night for Ladies Night was a charity performance with the CWA Baldivis Belles Branch and the Rockingham Sound Day View Club each benefiting with a donation from the Rockingham Theatre Company.
Baldivis Belles member Linda Tammen said the $290 would go towards helping a local women’s refuge and making starter kits for women with nothing.
Rockingham Sound Day View Club president Valery Buckley said the $440 donation would help sponsor 10 Smith Family Learning for Life students.
Ladies Night continues for three more weekends, on November 17, 18, 24, 25, December 1 and 2 from 7.30pm.
