“In with the new”
“Last night I had the enormous pleasure of witnessing one of Erinsborough's exciting new talents first hand. Nina Tucker is without a doubt one of the freshest new faces to hit the local stage. With an outstanding vocal range and an undeniable electric stage presence, this girl is blessed with the kind of looks and ability necessary to make it to the top.”
Lou and Trixie start clapping. Harold continues reading.
“The only thing preventing Ms Tucker from ascending the dizzy heights of stardom is if she insists on taking…” Harold pauses… “Trixie along for the ride”
“Old mother Tucker could have and should have made a dignified exit from her media and stage career from than 5 years ago” Harold doesn't want to continue. Trixie says she's a big girl and takes the paper from him and starts reading it.
