CINDERELLA '49

Rhyl Children's Theatre ClubHere are excerpts from another of Diana Jones’ souvenir programmes. This one is dated week commencing Monday, 3rd January 1949 and the venue is Queens Theatre, West Parade (Manager: Harry Wrench).

The Rhyl Children’s Theatre Club (Director Joseph Holroyd) presented their third annual pantomime ‘Cinderella’ starring Rhona Parker in the title role and Thelma Griffiths as 'Prince Charming'. That was long before the present Little Theatre was built; the club had no theatre of its own.

The story calls for Brokers Men, and on this occasion they were 'Spotall and Grabbit’ played by John Carroll (left), and Adrian Henri who went on to be a famous artist and poet.
