This was our second production of 'The Winter's Tale' and was perfomed on alternating nights alongside 'Romeo & Juliet', our other show of 1948.

The show featured both recorded music by local performers and also a trio in act 2 which was sung to a setting written especially for the production. It also included a dance which was arranged by Constance Gray.

We hope to be able to add more information and photographs from this production soon.
