Viagara Falls - Sweeten Up
VIAGARA Falls - Sweeten Up is a lively, original farce which derives its humour and charm from warm, relatable characters and a simple mistake that escalates wildly out of control, affecting an entire community.
It also demonstrates the absurd consequences of unnecessary fear and prejudice.
Not for the prudish however. At 7.30pm, adults $25, concession $20.
