St Peters Players
Give “Loves A Luxury” At Conisbrough

First night of Conisbrough’s St Peters players’ production of “Loves A Luxury” was thoroughly enjoyed by a packed audience in the Church Hall on Wednesday.

The play has an excellent setting, made by Mr J. J. Urch, who was unfortunately, unable to see the production as he had been in a London hospital for two weeks following an operation on his left arm. He was assisted in making this stage setting by Mr N. Humphries.

An excellent offering is given by G. Alec Taylor who plays Bobby Bentley, and by Brian Panther, (Mr Mole, the silly Scoutmaster, who believes anything that is told him, and has a habit of mixing things up), Cyril Brooke returns to the players after three years absence makes a very happy return indeed. Edith Birch also gives a good performance.

Peter Pilkington, a new member of the group, and Pauline Bedford, a member returned after several years absence, are other good members of the cast, along with Kathleen Price, Phillis Drabble and John Kingston.

This stage manager is Mr J. J. Urch, assistant, Mr M. Humphries, lighting engineer Mr A. Westlake, wardrobe mistress Mrs C. Braithwaite, and property Mr G. A. Taylor.

The society offers a welcome to all interested in the amateur stage in the district.
