Hansel & Gretel
David Town posted the following comment:
"The appearance of the photographs of the Sunday School pantomimes brought back some happy memories of appearing in the
productions. I remember the rehearsals were on a Saturday morning and more often than not I was missing due to playing soccer
for the school, which did not always go down well with the producer Doreen Sharp (now Smith) who I believe is involved with
Sutton Amateurs. The first photograph was Aladdin and the missing names on the back row are Phillip Akrigg and Alan Daniels,
I believe the boy on the front row is Richard Barrett. The second photograph is Hansel & Gretel and again Richard Barrett
is the unknown boy (update Feb 2012: Margarete Parker (nee Hellam) identified the unknown boy as Stuart Hellam not Richard Barrett).
To obtain the boys name on the back row I will have to look at some old records."
The following newspaper review was submitted by Margarete Parker (nee Hellam):
