School Play 1933 - Abou Hassan

Just as pupils of present times look forward to producing their annual school play, these pupils pictured here in 1933 were obviously proud of their production of `Abou Hassan'.

It is interesting to note that there were three evening performances and that tickets were on sale at 2/- each. Costumes appear to be both imaginative and lavish and the sets were equally impressive; scenes taking place in a Baghdad market place and a room in the Palace.

Present day productions are ever popular and not surprisingly so, when such strong dramatic traditions lend their support.

Rufford C.E. School Another group of aspiring actors and actresses from Rufford C.E. School. Photographed here, in 1933, this group of infants looks anything but happy at the prospects of their imminent production.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory And, more recently in 1980, these children took part in a production of Roald Dahl's `Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'.
