Not only did the Entertainers shine on stage, they have supported more than 20 community groups with ticket sale proceeds.
The 2018 Milton Ulladulla Entertainers production saw sold out shows and a record $31,000 raised for community groups.
Milton Ulladulla Entertainers president Craig Cameron thanked the community for its support of the show, saying it was “one of the strongest seasons” they have had.
“We appreciate all that have been behind the scenes, and those asking their family and friends to support the show and buy tickets,” he said.
“We believe it has been one of the strongest seasons we have had for many years, if not the strongest one we have had ever, which is a wonderful way to celebrate the year.”
Mr Cameron praised show director Georgia Sadler, who pitched the idea of the Music Never Dies show.
“What a wonderful director Georgia has been and is,” he said.
“Thanks to Georgia for such a wonderful show. When she first presented the idea to the committee, of the Music Never Dies, we weren’t sure how it was going to go, but what a wonderful theme it was.
“It was great to remember the artists who have passed.”
This year’s show saw a few changes implemented, one being the introduction of a two-act production. Mr Cameron said the feedback on the change had been positive.
“We felt it was a better format and feedback we have received is that it was a great way to run the show,” he said.
Mr Cameron thanked the Ulladulla St Vincent de Paul Society for donating costumes to the Entertainers. The society donates clothes to the show each year free of charge.
“They give us costumes at no charge and we return the costumes to them washed at the end of the season,” he said.
“We are very grateful to them.”
All of the performers involved in the 2018 production were thanked for their time and effort.
“The performers put in a lot of time to make the show what it was. The dancers met twice a week to rehearse for six months, and the rest of the cast met once a week for six months, as well as practicing at home,” Mr Cameron said.
“They give up a lot of time and put a lot of effort into the show behind the scenes.”
