Two Wells Melodrama Group’s 2013 production, “One Hump or Two”, will be a show not to miss this month, so grab your diary and mark down the dates for the chance to enjoy a great night of entertainment.

First performed by the group in 1987, “One Hump or Two” is a reprise of the original script by Les “Nig” Williams.

The updated script promises the usual Two Wells fun and frivolity, along with a great meal.

Witness the irrepressible Anne Arbon as belly dancer “Shican”, or marvel at Paul Schmelzkopf as Arabian Sheik Al Avem, and chuckle at Katie O’Doherty as part of a camel, among other favourite performers.

Director, Eleisha Arbon is excited about this season’s desert-set show and is encouraging everyone to join in the fun.

“It’s going to be a bright, colourful show with plenty of laughs,” she said.

Tickets are $35 and include a three-course meal, or $30 for a two-course meal at the Sunday matinee performance.

Book online at www.trybooking.com or phone 8520 2778.

Performance dates are: May 10, 11, 17, 18, 24 & 25, with the matinee on Sunday May 19.
