Props wanted for scouts show

WHITLEY Bay & District Scouts are performing Showtime at the Playhouse Whitley Bay from November 22 to 26.

As we get nearer to the show our prop department and wardrobe department has failed to secure a few essential items, despite much effort, and we were wondering if the items we require were available via the readers of the News Guardian.

We are looking for old fashioned chest expanders, Hawaiian shirts, heads to display wigs, Second World War uniforms, 1950’s cocktail/prom dresses, and size five or six black tap shoes.

What we have found is that many of the hundreds of costumes we have collected over the years are now only suitable for smaller people, and hence our challenge to find costumes that fit today’s teenagers.

Anyone who can help is asked to contact us via (0191) 253 4755 or e-mail

May we thank you readers in anticipation.
