Feb 1–4, 8–11, 2018
The Farndale Ladies are back!! Flushed by their “successes,” the stalwart veterans of the Dramatic Society are poised to conquer yet another dramatic idiom: their current production sails the luxury ocean liner SS Farndale Avenue into the world of thirties musical comedy.

Circumstances almost beyond their control threaten to wreck the evening’s entertainment, but the ladies and Gordon, in true Farndale form, soar above such mundane matters to present some catchy numbers and a stunning underwater sequence
