Elanora Players are proud to present THE ACCUSED by esteemed writer, Jeffrey Archer for their JULY production.

Eminent surgeon Dr Patrick Sherwood has been accused of murdering his wife with drugs obtained by his ‘supposed’ mistress.
This murder thriller from infamous Archer will keep you on your toes throughout with the audience acting as the jury, as if they were in the Central Criminal Court at the Old Bailey. The author has very cleverly written two endings and dependent on the jury’s decision it could go either way.

They will decide….Did Dr Sherwood murder his wife? Was Jennifer Mitchell his mistress? Which of his alibis should you believe? Is the accused a victim or a murderer? Was it a heart attack or a crime of passion? Is the accused a victim or a murderer?

With a cast of 14 we welcome back some of your favourites, Bill Akhurst, Jan Adamson, Robert Longley and a few new members, Susan Boyd, Faye Williams, Tony Clark and many more.

Opening night Friday 13th July @ 8pm
Saturday 14th July @ 3pm and 8pm

There’s no need to bring a partner as we rotate you around to different partners during the class.

We start with a beginner class at 7:30pm for 45 minutes, followed by social dancing. At 9pm we have an Intermediate /advanced class for 45 minutes, and a concurrent 'refresher' class for the beginners, then social dancing until 10:30pm.  That’s right beginners get 2 classes every night.

Casual entry is $15 per night.  Students and seniors are only $12 per night.  We also have discounted prices, for all groups, if you buy a 5 class pass.  Great value for learning and dancing up to 3 hours per night.
