Miss Bilby and the Moss-Covered Cleric

When: 2pm and 7.30pm today and 2pm tomorrow.

Where: ZPAC Theatre Hervey Bay

What: Miss Bilby and the Moss-Covered Cleric is a light-hearted spoof both of an Agatha Christie whodunnit and of bad radio drama, with every cliche of plot and sound effect. Hilariously, all sound effects are produced on stage in the most ingenious and funny ways, with sound effects being the star of the show. Written to be read aloud from scripts (so there are no lines to be learnt, no costumes and no set) this play was created as a large-cast celebrity fund raiser.


Tickets are $27.50, $22 for concessions and $16.50 for students.
