BHTC NOTES: This was the clubs first ever pantomime directed by June Colledge, who was to produce and direct many wonderful pantomimes and shows for BHTC in the years to come.
Before this date, the Downlanders group had performed the annual Pantomimes in the town until they joined with BHTC sometime in 1965. The only two productions we have details about are Jack & Jill (1962) and Cinderella (1965). These productions have not been counted as 'official' BHTC shows.
