All Singing, All Dancing, All Good Fun
The Donald Simpson Community Centre opened over thirty years ago as a facility for the mature aged community members of the Redlands area on the southern end of Brisbane's Moreton Bay.
It was developed to benefit the elderly and those close to retirement age by providing activity and information programs at a nominal fee. Currently, the Centre is running programs in health, education as well as social activities. These days, there is no excuse to sit at home twiddling your thumbs wondering how to fill in the hours.
One of the interest groups is a group of folk with a love of Theatre. This energetic group meet one morning a week with the aim of providing experience and satisfaction in being involved with live stage and performances, both on and off the stage.
Their next production, Simply The Best, features the songs of some big names, such as Frank Sinatra, Neil Diamond, Julie Andrews, and Barbara Streisand. The show will also include comedy sketches, dance numbers, and I'm told, fabulous costumes.
No, I'm not yet of that demographic to participate in such festivities. However, I do support these events and just love encouraging our older folk who put some much time, effort and heart into these productions. Honestly, at times I envy their energy!
If you too would like to support our Seniors Simply The Best will be performed on: Saturday 19th August Sunday 20th August
Saturday 26th August Sunday 27th August
All shows commence at 2pm.
