In 'Sex Please We're Sixty' Mrs. Stancliffe's successful Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast has guests that return yearly. Her neighbor, Bud 'Bud the Stud' Davis believes they come to spend time with him in romantic liaisons. Her other neighbor, Henry Mitchell is a retired chemist and has developed a pill to increase the libido of menopausal women. The fun begins when Bud attempts to entertain the guests Victoria Ambrose, Hillary Hudson, and Charmaine Beauregard. The mayhem ensues and then all the women find their lives moving in new and surprising directions.

This is Janette Spink's second performance with Elgin Theater Company and she is playing the part of Charmaine Beauregard. Janette has been involved in community theater around the area off and on over the past 30 years.

Some of her past performances have been: Urinetown, Incorruptible, Sorry Wrong Number, Working, Squabbles, Night of the Iguana, Wit, Fools, Beauty and the Beast,The Crucible, and Thumbs.
