Javea U3A members had a treat at their last monthly meeting of the year at the Parador hotel!
The general meeting business was replaced by another spectacular Christmas show – the annual Extravaganza.
A performance by the Costa Blanca Male Voice Choir started off the fun and was followed by a series of sketches and musical groups by U3A members.
The committee was unrecognisable in the shortened version of Hungarian Cinderella. MembersLyndsey and Gary Johnson were hilariousin their respective sketches as an aerobics instructor and “father of the bride”.
There were then performances by the U3A Guitar Group, led by Phil Shepherd, and the Out of the Blue band, who got the audience into the Christmas spirit with some hearty carolling.
Linda Coughlin and Val Dromgoole finished the show as “stripping cleaners”!
The show was masterminded and compered by the U3A’s Events Co-ordinator Shirley King.
After the finale and an appreciative round of applause from the audience, there was the usual tradition of sherry and mince pies …. consumed in vast quantities by the 300 or so members who attended.
