Manning Valley Choral Society's (MVCS) newest production Tea and Tragedy is attracting interest from far and wide.

Audiences at last weekend's performances at Killabakh and Coopernook came as far afield as Port Macquarie, the NSW South Coast and even Western Australia.

This weekend the group puts its best foot forward for audience members travelling from far north Queensland and even New Zealand.

Tea and Tragedy is the fourth original play written by life member Geraldine Mullin for the MVCS Choral Society.

Over the past decade, Geraldine has been inspired to combine words and music to create a themed body of work in which all members play an important part.

This year's offering features the music of Hart, Kern and Rodgers, and is set in a communal living space.

There is much scope to create memorable characters, all of whom contribute to the plot and resolution of the story. Written as a radio play, imaginations run wild as the words spoken convey a mental picture of the unfolding mayhem.

Choral items enhance the impact of the script, with a 'feel good', satisfactory conclusion to the scenario.

There are two shows remaining at Tinonee Hall on Saturday September 24 and Tuncurry Bowling Club on Sunday September 25. Both start at 2pm.

Tickets are $10 for adults, concessions and children $8, and families $20. Children six and under are free, and are available at the door. For more information, contact the secretary on 6553 9561
