Miss Saigon                                                                                                                                         

Those who enjoyed the fabulous performance of Les Miserables last year might wish to attend Miss Saigon, put on by the same group – Old Scotch Musical & Drama Club - on Friday 18 October 2019 at 7.45 pm. Tickets at $40 each are to be paid for not later than the October meeting, but commitments must be received no later than the August Meeting so that seats can be booked                                                                                                                            

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory                                                                                                             

This new musical by Roald Dahl about the adventures of Willy Wonka will be presented in Melbourne at $72 per seat on Wednesday 20 November 2019 at 1 pm. We need a minimum of 12 starters for that price and expressions of interest are needed now so that bookings can be made within the next two months. Payment will be required by the June meeting.   


This one of the all-time favourite musicals of the US. Performances are scheduled to start in December at the Arts Centre and we are aiming at attending a matinee performance on Wednesday 19 February 2020. The cost will be $72 per seat providing we have a minimum number of 12 starters. This seems to be a long way ahead, but we will need to reserve seats in the next month or so and pay for them no later than October to avoid the hassles of Christmas and January                

Please let me know of other productions that you think will be of interest.
