STAG presents our first production for 2018 by Frederick Knott, Wait Until Dark, directed by Rhys Purdey at the Strathmore Community Hall from 1 to 11 March.

A sinister con man and two ex-convicts have traced the location of a doll, which contains a hidden substance of great value, to the Notting Hill Gate apartment of Sam Henderson and his blind wife, Susy. Sam had apparently been persuaded by a strange woman to transport the doll into London from Amsterdam. However, after the woman turns up murdered, matters become more urgent. The con man and his ex-convicts, through a cleverly constructed deception, convince Susy that the police have implicated Sam in the woman’s murder, and the doll, which she believes is the key to his innocence, is evidence. But just how far will Susy fall into their sinister web of lies and deceit?

Clean Up Australia Day is a chance for everyone to get together and pitch in for the environment. Working together as a community, we can make a massive difference to our local area.

In the past 26 years, Clean Up Australia Day volunteers have collected over 331 thousand tonnes of rubbish. That’s a lot of waste that might’ve otherwise ended up in our waterways.

To get involved this year, you can either:

• Register a new site and run your own clean up event (you’ll get a Clean Up Kit containing everything you need) or;

• Register to volunteer at an existing site in your local area.

Don’t forget to bring some sturdy gloves, a water bottle and wear long clothing and solid closed-toed shoes.

Visit cleanupaustraliaday.org.au or call 1800 282 329 for more information.

Ride, run, jog or walk – it’s your choice when it comes to participating in the 2018 MS Melbourne Cycle or Half Marathon on Sunday 15 April 2018!

Prefer the wind on your face and taking in the stunning views of Melbourne? Then the MS Melbourne Cycle is right for you! For those seeking a challenge, the 30km and 50km courses will take riders on a breathtaking trek over the West Gate Bridge and around the unknown sights of inner Melbourne.

But if you prefer to run to your hearts content, the MS Half Marathon might peak your interests. In 2018, we are introducing a run component to the MS Melbourne Cycle, allowing the running community to help fundraise and build awareness for multiple sclerosis. The unique course starts and finishes in the grounds of the Flemington Racecourse which will take runners through the fabled Flemington rose gardens and the Melbourne Showgrounds.

Amenities, volunteers and cheering family and friends will be aplenty for both runners and riders to make the most of the day.

Multiple sclerosis is an invisible disease which does not yet have a cure, and with over 23,000 Aussies living with multiple sclerosis the time is now to fight MS.

Don’t want to participate on the day but still want to help? Why not donate to a rider or join our amazing team of volunteers.

Visit www.msmelbourne.org.au for more information about the courses and register today.
