Name that show....

A nice picture sent in from Angela Garland, showing the participants in a production at Hyde Theatre around 1959, all members of St Paul's RC School Newton, Hyde.




If you can name the play that would be great and how about a few names..... thank you Angela for sending this in and making this post possible. If you have any pictures you'd like to share please do so.
