ON TIME: MUSLSA Annual Charity Play 2016
7 April, 2016
Sri Lankan Students Association (MUSLSA)
Beautiful parks, sunny beaches, friendly locals. In the peaceful streets of Frankston, an old man named Bernie Wilson lives a lonely life. He doesn’t talk to anyone and no one talks to him. One day a lively family, the Fernandos, move in next door to old man Bernie. The three Fernando children; who are not too fond of their new move, delve into the unhappiness of their new neighbour Bernie. In doing so, two separate worlds of young and old collide and what happens next is a journey that has to be seen to be believed…
MUSLSA is proud to present to you the 2016 Annual Charity Play: On Time! Over the years the Annual Charity Play has become one of MUSLSA’s flagship events; filled with comedy, dance numbers and stellar acting performances.
The proceeds from the play this year will be going to the Sacred Heart Orphanage in Kandy, Sri Lanka. This home was opened after the devastating Boxing Day Tsunami of 2004 and aims to educate children, provide them with a chance to live better lives and help them break through the poverty cycle. In December this year members from the MUSLSA committee will be travelling to Sri Lanka to personally donate furniture, utensils, food and set up a computer we plan to provide the home through the money raised at this year’s Charity Play. Over the years, the MUSLSA charity program has successfully grown and made a real difference within orphanages and organisations and we are looking forward to helping more communities in years to come.
Without a doubt it’s going to be a night of hilarious comedy, good times and classic hits! So come down this April to see your friends showcase months of hard work whilst simultaneously supporting a worthwhile cause!
