REHEARSALS have started for a stage society’s pantomime.

The Hartlepool Stage Society has already chosen the cast for its November production of The Wizard Of Oz, A Pantomime.

The production will be held at the Town Hall Theatre, from Tuesday, November 4, to Saturday, November 8.

Each show will have a 7pm start and there will also be a Saturday matinee.

Spokesman Sarah Barton said: “The tickets for the show are expected to be printed soon.” The show is the first that the society has held in which both the adult and junior sections will perform together.

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, which was in Osborne Road, in Hartlepool, before it outgrew the hall and needed to move on.

It then moved to the Throston Grange Community Centre, in Glamorgan Grove.
