THE Chester-le-Street Theatre Group needs the use of eight Zimmer frames for its next production.

It is rehearsing the Mel Brooks classic The Producers, which it will stage in the town’s Park View School from Wednesday to Saturday, July 9 to 12.

Bill Watson, the group’s press officer, said: “We need eight Zimmer frames. Part of the play has the director trying to con little old ladies into investing in the production in return for a last chance at stardom.

“Loaned frames will be returned after the production and donated frames will be distributed to appropriate charities.”
