HMS Pinafore 1948
Thanks to Ruth Parsons-Wallhead (1948-1950, Kennedy House) for providing the programme and photo of the 1948 production of HMS Pinafore. The cover is an original painting, however, there is also an additional cover so we are unsure as to whether several different ones were produced or whether there was, perhaps, a competition for pupils to submit entries.


Thanks to Ruth Parsons-Wallhead (1948-1950, Kennedy House) for providing another photo of the 1948 production of HMS Pinafore. This photo is in a mounted folder and has the autographs of some of the cast on the back of the folder. Please click on the images below.
