Maybe you could sell tickets to include a plus pie option??

Are you going to launch the season to purchase in one shop or will it be piecemeal?



I couldn’t be more excited!!!!

Eirini; Eleni; John; Anna; Kyriaki - please get a group together and book for this. I saw this production in 2019 in Perth, and it is outstanding!
