Archive - Past Productions

This page lists all "known" productions by the Players. If there are any details missing - programmes, photographs, etc., please let us know. We would love to borrow them to make our records more complete. We promise to look after them while on loan.

We are especially indebted to several ex-Players for the loan of material for incorporation in the website. In particular - Kath Beard, Tony Tipper, Sheelagh Hughes and others.

Clicking on a Production Link in the table below will take you to a page with more details relating to that production - if available. We are continually updating this page and the many sub-pages with more material as and when time allows.
