80 Years of Hartwell Players

01/03/2018 Colin Donald

“MELBOURNE’S Oldest Theatre Company” is a title not easily earned, but in 2018 Hartwell Players Theatre Company of Ashwood turns 80! And to celebrate their milestone, the Players are hosting a “Spectacularly Trivial Trivia Night” event at the Notting Hill Community Hall on 21 April. Starting in 1938 under the quaint moniker of “Presbyterian Merry Makers” the fledgling group had no idea they would evolve to be the most inclusive and enduring theatre company in town.
