Paulette and Ainsley Mercer with Woolworths Store Manager, Nicholas Cantoni, would like to see a good audience for their show at Theatre 44 on Sunday.

A show being held at Theatre 44 this weekend by young performers will raise money for the children's ward at the hospital.

The show will be held on Sunday at 2pm, and organiser Paulette Mercer said it will involve children who love to perform.

"There will be singers and dancers," she said. "It gives young kids that don't have the chance to go on stage the opportunity to perform."

She said the performance was a fundraiser for the hospital, via the Woolworths Fresh Food appeal, and the Repertory Society.

"The money raised from the canteen will go back to Theatre 44," Ms Mercer said.

"The door takings will go to the Children's Ward at the hospital."

Woolworths Store Manager, Nicholas Cantoni, said that this would be the first time that the money raised by them would go to the local hospital.

"Normally it goes to the Adelaide Hospital," he said.

"It is good to see the money raised will be staying in town."

Besides the show, Woolworths staff have been holding chocolate drives to raise money.

Theatregoers will also be able to enjoy free home made cakes from the canteen along with tea and coffee."
