Barnsley Playergoers ~1960



Dear Mary,

Thanks for your address.  I'll make sure it gets into my old fashioned address book this time!
Here's a picture from my drama days.

Taken in October 1960, (probably by the Barnsley Chronicle) this photo shows the cast of the play “Saturday Night at the Crown” presented by the Barnsley Playgoers’ Society at the White Cross School, Worsborough Dale:

Gordon Senior
Hugh Wheatley
Geoffrey Billington
Kathleen Burland
Brian Greaves (behind barrel)
Eric Strutt
Olive Perry
Ida Millett
Vincent (Bill) Edgar
Raymond Crossley
Dennis Armitage
Roy Oldroyd

Incidentally, I see you mention Les Eagle in one spot.  He was also a member of the Playgoers, though not in this production.  He was also the best English teacher I ever had.  Raymond Crossley (above) I believe now has connections with the Lamproom Theatre.

Kind regards,
