"We Came, We Saw, We Laughed
What a treat we had on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 3rd. We laughed, we sang, we waved our hands in the air, we clapped and we cheered.
Yes ladies and gentlemen, Act Your Age theatre troupe was live at Corumbene. And what a lively bunch they were.
They gave us songs and dances, skits and, wait for it. . . Charlie Chaplin. Well, alright, it might have been someone pretending to be Charlie Chaplin in his classic role ‘The Tramp’. But the actress was so good that we felt as if we had the little man himself in the room with us.
We all want to thank the lovely people from Act Your Age for bringing us such joy. As one of us said, ‘We’d better have these fellas back. I haven’t laughed so much for ages.’ We couldn’t agree more. Each and every one of these actors is a lesson to us all that silver hair and laugh lines (the upscale version of grey hair and wrinkles) are no reason to keep us from living our lives to the absolute fullest."

..."I on behalf of the Committee and members of Kingston Ladies Probus extend to you and all the cast our very sincere thanks for the wonderful performance on Monday. I have received many messages by phone and by email saying how much everyone enjoyed it. Of course they all had their favourite pieces, and so did I, Charlie Chaplin quite made my day; but everyone appreciated the time and effort that had gone into making such a professional performance by all the cast. If you need a reference at all please ask them to contact us, we will give you a glowing review!"
