In the fall of 1945 a small group of parents and teachers at Central School in Ferguson, Mo., settled on the idea of presenting a mystery play entitled Hobgoblin House as a fund-raising activity for the PTA, The production was immensely successful and the participants so thoroughly enjoyed the undertaking. that a theatre organization was quickly formed. Thus were sown the seeds for Hawthorne Players, North St. Louis County’s oldest theatre group, with a membership of over 100 adults and young people drawn from throughout the metropolitan area.
