This footage contains a performance of Champagne Ladies as performed in the 2005 Victorian Drama League One Act Play Festivals, at the Blue Stone Theatre, Kyneton, Australia with Ingrid Gang and Maree Parry
These two darlings are the epitome of all that is offensive with the society set. Preened, primped, cut and set, the pair meets at one of the ‘in’ places to see and be seen. Keeping an eye out for their well-heeled colleagues and guzzling down champagne, we are privileged to an insight of our high society pages and ladies of the high-class set. The correct social functions, birthdays, opening nights at the Opera and the Ballet can prove to be hell. One must make sure the correct attire is worn in hats, gloves, shoes, jewellery and shawls to mix and match.
Two society ladies sit down to a glass of champagne, after coming out from witnessing the worst performance of a well-known stage musical. Narelle purchased the tickets for both of them. Both try to hide their disappointment in the quality of the show.
