Hospital staff take to the stage for charity

30 April 2013

Members of staff at Harrogate District Hospital are putting on their third show to raise money for local health services.

They will be performing the Aldwych farce, Tons of Money, which was adapted by Alan Ayckbourn, from 15-18 May at the Frazer Theatre in Knaresborough. Tickets are priced at £10 for adults and £7 for children under 12 and can be bought from the General Office at Harrogate District Hospital or Ye Olde Chemist Shoppe in Knaresborough.

Set in the 1920s, the play tells the story of a couple of hard up eccentric aristocrats who inherit a fortune – but only if a long lost relative dies and others in the house don’t get at it first.

The Company is made up of staff working in Harrogate hospital, with a couple of guest stars from Leeds Hospitals. On stage are Nurses, Doctors, Technical and Administrative staff, with terrific support from multiple departments backstage, also made up of hospital staff.

All proceeds from the play will go to improving health services at Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust.

The group formed “The Trust us Theatre Company” two years ago to present the award winning comedy “Dumbstruck” and followed that up last year with panto Snow White. Both shows have been a big hit with both Hospital staff and the public.
