Fundraising Venture

This production was in conjunction with The music Hall Company, staged at the Palace Theatre as a fundraising venture.

All proceeds were for the H.E.A.L Appeal whose aim it was to raise funds for laser equipment, which was to help fight cervical cancer. The appeal was based at the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch.

At the end of the evening £2250.84 was raised and the cheque was presented by founder Member Ted Pedvin to the H.E.A.L Appeal.

Wythall Theatre Group in Old Tyme Mood

On July 21and 22 - "The Wythall Theatre Group' together with "The Music Hall Company', are presenting an Olde Tyme Music Hall at the Palace Theatre, Redditch. The proceeds from this production will go to local hospital, The Alexandra, Redditch, who have launched an appeal which is aimed at purchasing much needed Laser equipment to help fight cervical cancer. The Alexandra Hospital specialise in the prevention and cure of this type of cancer.

The cost of this equipment is £80,000, and will be an essential life-saving service to the community.

The evening's entertainment will consist of - Songs everyone will know, famous monologues, a mini melodrama from the 1890's - fun for all the family - entertainment witch will be long remembered.

It is hoped that everyone will dress-up for the occasion (even an olde tyme hat will do) and there will be a prize for the best effort.

Tickets are £3.00 each. A special party concession is available for parties of 20 and over. Please book party tickets through the Theatre Group only.

The evenings start at 8 pm and it is hoped they will both sell-outs.

Right on time

The continuing Nalgo strike is causing problems for members of Wythall Theatre Group, due to present their Old Tyme Music Hall at the Palace Theatre, Redditch, on Friday and Staurday in aid of the town's Alexandra Hospital appeal for £80,000.

The money will be used to purchase laser equipment for the fight against cervical cancer.

With the theatre staff almost 100 per cent Nalgo members the Palace has been spending a considerable time with its doors shut and its box office unmanned. This, of course, does mothering whatever for any hopes of selling tickets for an excellent cause.

The frustration shows as Estelle Shutkever, for the theatre group, told me: "It is laughable when you think that the show is for the local hospital, but we can't sell tickets until the day the show opens because we are told that the theatre will not open again until Friday and out people are not allowed to answer the telephone.

It sounds like a good case for turning up on the night. And for allowing plenty of time before curtain-up - because I hope there will be a long queue of potential patrons waiting to pay good money for a good cause.
