REVEREND Gary Neville is predicting plenty of laughs and entertainment at this week’s inaugural St Barnabas Anglican Church’s theatre restaurant.
For two nights only, tomorrow and Saturday nights, audiences will be able to enjoy a three-course meal while being entertained by the church’s parishioners.
Reverend Neville thinks the audience will be pleasantly surprised when they see the amateur performers in action.
“I think we’ll all see talents we’ve never seen before,” he said.
“It should be a fun night with lots of laughs.”
Reverend Neville said while he had previously helped stage other fundraising theatrical productions in towns such as Mudgee and Hargraves, this was the first time he’d worked with Orange parishioners.
The show will feature sing-a-longs, skits and a melodrama written by Reverend Neville.
“We’ll also have a string quartet plus two, and a group called Bad Habits who will be dressed as nuns and singing songs from Sister Act,” he said.
“I think it’s a wonderful way of bringing people together.”
The show kicks off at the church on the corner of Dora and McLachlan streets at 7pm and will run until around 10pm.
The $40 tickets can be purchased from Willoughby’s Model Cars and at the church office in Dora Street.
