MELONOMA Tasmania has benefited from the mirth and merriment of the annual Bawdy Pantos, having received more than $6,700 from the theatre group after a successful two-week season of ‘Bumblina’ at the Playhouse Theatre in December.
Producer John X said that each year the Panto chose a charity to support.
He said the team was excited to support Melanoma Tasmania, a charity which provides advocacy, support and counselling for Tasmanians and their families affected by melanoma.
Fundraising is done through volunteers rattling buckets at the end of the show and the now traditional mid-show ‘meat tray auction’.
“We were very lucky to have the support of M&J Butchers in Clarence and Hill St Gourmet Meats in West Hobart, who provided nine meat trays free of charge,” John X said.
“It couldn’t have been done without them.”
