Brian Proctor: Peter Woodthorpe (as Pistol) is on the extreme left.
We wuz robbed! In the Semi-final, Heath G.S just beat us by a disputed late try
In addition to the concerts and plays that were produced, there were also occasionally more light hearted revues which gave a platform to some of the teachers' and pupils' other talents.
(I can still remember the accusation that I was a plant after calling out a playing card for Skinner (an amateur magician) to produce at one of these - Hugh Bracey).
This is the complete "highly professional, no expense spared" programme from one of these revues (1955?) which may invoke memories and raise a smile.
If anyone has other programmes or similar memorabilia tucked away in a shoe box in the attic we would be grateful if we could display here.
Peter Grainger: Hugh, it appears that we were in the same play although mine was only a bit part. I also did not realise that we were in some "yet to be established" illustrious company. One Frank Dobson!! Which one is he on the group photo - bottom centre?
Hugh Bracey: I am the one on the right in the drab costume - servant bit part players didn't get to wear gaudy clothes. I recall walking out in the playground in the dark in full makeup, and I think it was Cotterell who failed to recognise me under the greasepaint when I met him there.
Vic, proof indeed that you were a thespian in heady company! Can anyone identify any of the others in the photos under the makeup?
Vic Worrall: That is amazing, more so because I do not remember anything about it. I remember being in something as an urchin when in the first or second form and then I was in something else where I think Font (Mike Willan) had the lead role.
This explains my theatrical bent, Jessica's inheritance and my political background...I still tread the boards for the village panto, which I also direct......perhaps I should have been an actor or a pop star.....I think I could cope with adulation and women throwing themselves at me!!!!
