A MU­SEUM has opened a new ex­hi­bi­tion that cel­e­brates the 70th an­niver­sary of an Amer­sham theatre group.

Amer­sham Mu­seum, in High Street, Old Amer­sham, launched its 70 years of Amer­sham Playgoers Theatre Group ex­hi­bi­tion on Wed­nes­day June 8.

The dis­play cel­e­brates the past and present of one of the county’s longest­stand­ing drama groups. The ex­hi­bi­tion opened to the pub­lic the fol­low­ing day and runs un­til Sun­day.

Amer­sham Mu­seum is open Thurs­day, Fri­day and Sun­day from 2pm to 4.30pm and Satur­day from 10am to 4.30pm.

Amer­sham Playgoers Theatre Group was formed in Novem­ber 1946 by a group of lo­cal res­i­dents who tried to brighten up the lives of the post war com­mu­nity by form­ing an am­a­teur drama group to per­form plays in Amer­sham.

The aims of the so­ci­ety were to foster their love of the theatre, to visit lo­cal and West End pro­duc­tions and to stage plays lo­cally on an am­a­teur ba­sis.

The so­ci­ety has per­formed many plays over the years from a mixed selec­tion of com­edy, farce, drama, clas­sics and thrillers.
