The Chiltern Hundreds
Here is “The Chiltern Hundreds” from April 1959. This was one of Dad’s favourite character roles, and I think the photo with Mary Housby (another founder member) was also one of his favourite snaps over the years. The changeover has now been made to home made typed out programmes. A cost saving I presume. Sadly no sign of anything from “The Sacred Flame” performed in February 1959. Anybody out there with a photo or a news report?
Wigton Theatre Club’s production of “Murder Mistaken” in October 1959. No photos again, but we do have a couple of press cuttings. The first of 4 plays for the 59-60 season. A third Hadwin makes his debut. First mention I think of the Clubroom in Duke Street. I remember this - it was upstairs on the left going from the Market Place down the lane toward Church Street. Strangely, the advert on the back of the programme mentions “While Parents Sleep” planned for December 1959. No record of this in the scrapbook and no mention on the WTC website. Did this one ever happen?
