FIVE of Newcastle's more experienced musical theatre performers will take to the stage in the name of charity this weekend.
Lia Bundy, Alison Lobb, Kate Fahey, Allison Van Gaal and Rachelle Schmidt will star in Someone's Else's Story, performing well-loved songs from stage and screen.
All profits raised on the night will go towards Mum's Cottage, a community-based organisation at Holmesville.
St Mary's High School music and drama teacher Lia Bundy said she was inspired to raise funds for the grassroots establishment after Sister Helen-Anne Johnson gave a presentation on Mum's Cottage at her school.
The cottage helps Lake Macquarie families with financial support, counselling and groceries, as well as holding numeracy and literacy classes.
Ms Bundy enlisted the help of four friends she knew from various theatre channels to put on a show, along with Dan Wilson, who will accompany the women on the piano.
"There will be a lot of show tunes and a few pop songs we've rearranged.
"All money from the tickets sales will go straight back to Mum's Cottage, which is a great cause."
■ Someone Else's Story is on at the Savoy Room at the Lambton Community Centre on August 23 and 24. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to donate to Mum's Cottage or for information about ticket sales.
