60 Years of Youth Drama
In Autumn 1958, rehearsals began for an half hour production of “Dick Whittington” with a cast made up entirely of boys from the choir at St Peter's Church, Wolvercote, Oxford. The only performance of the play was given as part of the entertainment at a party for the local community in Wolvercote Village Hall on Saturday 24th January 1959. Another short play, “Lazy Ali”, was produced for the annual Church fete in the Vicarage garden on 4th July 1959, using some of the same actors who had performed in January. The enthusiasm shown in January was still there so, on 4th of July 1959, it was decided to start a youth drama group and the North Oxford Youth Theatre was born, in those days called the St Peter's Junior Dramatic Society.... continued on our About page.
