Programme Notes

Director's Notes

Following the practice of recent years, the next production by The Hospital Players will be a play with special appeal to children. We shall be at the Civic Theatre from 8th to 11th December, near enough to start thinking about Christmas.


The play will be the ever popular “Wizard of Oz,” which will give an opportunity for many of our members to be seen on stage.


There will be no age limit for the children who wish to see it.
