A stage society has returned to rehearsals and is now getting ready to prepare for its next show which will have a festive feel.

And Hartlepool Stage Society has also appealed for more members to come and join their set-up.

New members are always welcome. We will be working towards our winter concert, which is called It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, at the end of November

Spokesman Sarah Barton, who is one of the junior directors, said there were now three sections in rehearsals.

They are the Hartlepool Junior Stage Society, Hartlepool Stage Society and The Melodramatics, which she said was “our newly formed choir.”

Each of the groups hold their rehearsals which are in the Stage Society Hall, in Glamorgan Grove, in the Throston area of town.

She added: “New members are always welcome. We will be working towards our winter concert, which is called It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, at the end of November.”

The society has just marked its 60th year in existence. It was formerly known as the Gilbert & Sullivan Society.

It was based in Walmsley Hall in Osborne Road, before it moved to the Stage Society Hall, in the Throston Grange Community Centre.
