Actor-writer-director Philip Chappell will be honoured at a memorial night on Saturday, August 12th at The Indee at Eumundi. He agreed to the idea only on the basis that it be a fun night and that's exactly what organizers are planning.
There'll be theatre folk recounting some hilarious moments which involved Philip, not all of them necessarily true and some blown out of all proportion.
There'll be video clips of highlights from Up Eumundi Road with Philip appearing in sketches and there'll be musical interludes from some of the Coast's finest entertainers.
Philip was co-founder of The Indee and his acting triumphs included Jeffrey Bernard Is Unwell, Playing Sinatra, Lenny & Lee and Deceit and his directing masterpieces included Veronica's Room, The Exorcism, Stones In His Pockets, TV Signals and the early preparation work on The Woman In Black.
Everyone is invited so book your seats or make up a table. It'll be a great night with all proceeds going to the home palliative care group, Cittamani.
Doors open at 7.30 and it's table seating with both the Bio-Box bar and the Indee Café open - the café will have snacks, coffee, tea and cakes.
Tickets $15 and you can book on 5472 8200.
