Do you remember the School Speech Day ?
This was the cast of "Shivering Shocks" by Clemence Dane. Producer Mr. Holland with Mr.Pigot & Mr.Ward helping.
I'm the one in the dressing gown. Can anyone name the others.?
The following afternoon we gave a performance to the Girls School in the hall with the understudies taking part. I have had this photograph in my album for years.

Nice to know that some "classmates" are still around from 1959.
How about the 4A gang (both sexes) 1959/60. "Musical evenings" on a Saturday in some ones house, harmless fun in those days not like today's gangs.
