EXHIBITION HONOURS PLAYGOERS
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.
