Last night’s show at the Wentworth Falls Country Club, was a resounding success.
It was our last The Goon Show LIVE! event for 2014, and we certainly went out with a bang… well, with very clean scalps anyway.
Featuring three of Spike Milligan’s original scripts, the obvious highlight was the feature episode at the end of the night, ‘The Phantom Head Shaver of Brighton’.
The audience were very obviously there for a good laugh and as usual, the audience stayed around for a while after the show to meet the guys, grab an autograph or two and talk about their memories of the original CraZy people.
We also managed to secure some lovely compliments, including these lovely words from one lady who came to last week’s show at Blackheath with her husband, and then came to this show too (strange people);
“We were listening to some tapes this week and all I could visualise were (our cast) doing it, instead of the original Goons. They sound just like them…” High praise indeed, we are very flattered.
We’re now in planning for our 2015 shows, which includes a return to Sydney in March, and our annual appearance for Yulefest Blue Mountains from June to August.
The March show is in support of our friends as Rotary. Last year we raised $4000 for their projects, and this year we’re intending to do better. Help us help them – pick up tickets now.
