... Beverley from the Sunshine Coast and Rob and Beverly (yes another one) from Ryde in Sydney. It turned out the two Beverleys had relations in common in Rockhampton – unknown to both of them !! So – old home week !!
Daniel Mallari made a return to the stage tonight and was well received again. Very enjoyable performance.
