The Society’s member manager, Janet Chapman,
sure knows how to put on a good party. The latest “rave”
was on Saturday 10th July at Alexander Park’s Trotting
The Tasman room was packed to capacity, where
each guest was greeted with a complimentary glass of wine
or juice before the night burst into life with the performance
of the Diva Cabaret.
And what a performance, the audience was left
gasping with wonder on who would appear from behind the curtain
next. Boy George urged everyone to come a Chameleon, a
pouting Tom Jones exposed his chest and sang “it’s not
unusual” “She’s a lady” and his old favourite
“Delilah” Who doesn’t know the words to that one!!!
After the break a testosterone version of Tina Turner belted out
“what’s love got to do with it” and the ABBA girls
launched into a medley of their well known hits such as “Waterloo”
and “Mamma Mia”
A sure fire hit with the guys was the scantily clad dancing girls
who performed the Can-Can and an Indian Squaw dance which warmed
the cockles of your heart and everywhere else for that matter. Frank
N. Furter from the “Rocky Horror show” was the final
act and what a finale it was. Who could resist responding to the
“Time Warp” and hardly anyone did resist. Everyone within
sight was warped in time and boogied down to the beat.
As per usual the dinner was of
a high standard and everyone was in high spirits at the end
of an excellent night.
PS --- Everyone will be pleased to know that our oldest
member, Jack Flood, is recovering nicely from the experience
of having a dancing girl on his knee and a kiss from one of
the ABBA singers. Yes, it was the blonde one.
