Calling all Coastal institutions! Calling all coastal institutions! You can duck, you can cover, you can hide, run and head for them thar hills - but we're gonna find you!
Yes the riotous coastal revue, 'In Search of Bob Abbot's Beard' is in full swing. The show is like a cross between an adult pantomime and a cyclone! It's time to laugh at ourselves!! But remember fellow coasties, this is for us, and behind closed doors! Once this show is over it's back to smiling and waving, boys! Smiling and waving! Our interstate and international visitors must suspect nothing!

The pedigree of the cast alone is a sight to behold. Simon (That old hack) Denver, Brett (Goldenboy) Klease, Chris (I moved from Sydney to here for this!!!) Surplice head an all star cast including Howard Tampling, Rachel Fentiman, Shane Cassidy, Joy Marshall, Fiona James, Angel Goulter, Wayne Powrie, Jason Young and a host of other funny buggers. Add to them a full stage band, some great singers and a lot of nifty multi media work

One thing?s for certain, this show might not fundamentally change your life but its guaranteed to make you forget you've got a mortgage for a few hours!

A few cluey coastal personalities have out thought the scattergun and realised that the safest place to be is actually onstage during the show. Local Legend Doc Span will be join us for a few songs!! Rumours are flying in and out of rumour HQ that occasional guest appearances from a veritable bevy of local identities might be on the cards! Don't ask the producers - they have no idea what's going on! This show has developed a life of it's own! But what is confirmed is that the man himself, our living legend of a Mayor, Bob Abbot, is definitely in the show!!!

So... Why a coastal revue, Writer and performer Simon Denver said?? The coast is changing, growing, expanding! Suddenly we have one council not three, suddenly we are a city that?s a 100 kilometres long. Sometimes the best way of handling this is to sit back and laugh. Of course there?s problems out there, of course we all get a bit grumpy about things. But hey! You gotta laugh!?
