💉💊❤️ OPENING NIGHT FRIDAY JULY 12th! 💉💊❤️

Oh boy! The Doctor is almost in the HOUSE. Yes, we are now in the ONE MONTH countdown until opening night

Coming to the Coolum Civic Centre this JULY

The Queensland premiere of the smash hit original comedy.........

💉💊❤️ DR LURVE & THE SYRINGE OF SHAME 💉💊❤️
written and directed by Lisa and Kevin Blair

Dr Richard Lurve is a disgrace to the honourable medical profession. He has just graduated in 400th position out of 399 students and no one wants to employ him, as he is best known for his wild behaviour, womanising and partying. However, he is suddenly assigned to St Wretched’s, a hospital in a neglected community "somewhere" in south east Queensland.

Once he arrives, he discovers that all is not as it seems at this hospital and the employees are among the most bizarre characters he has ever met. And St Wretched’s has just been announced as the hospital with the poorest record in the state.
But what’s really going on at St Wretched’s?
And what exactly is the syringe of shame and who has been using it?

The cast will sing, dance, laugh and improvise their way through the story as they introduce the audience to all the characters and Dr Lurve has his chance to redeem his reputation by uncovering the sinister goings-on!

Join the Coolum Theatre Players for plenty of LOCAL jokes, references, innuendo, audience interaction and ..... there MAY (or may not) be partial nudity, excessive nonsense, men in lingerie, illicit substances and an invisible dog!
NB: (We did say MAY be....)
