Rawlins Grammar School -

Loughborough Monitor - 13th March 1947

The dramatic society of Rawlins Grammar School presented Rudolf Besier's "The Barretts of Wimpole Street," on Friday and Saturday to appreciative audiences. The standard attained would have been an enviable one for an adult company. The teamwork of the cast was excellent, and although it would be invidious to suggest that any individual member outshone the others it is only fitting to say that outstanding performances were given by Betty Stewart (Elizabeth Barrett) and Howard Poole (Edward Barrett). The whole production was a credit to the school, and Mr A Dalton Murray, headmaster, has received many appreciations from parents and friends.

The production was in the hands of Mr G A Bennett, and those taking part were P Boulter, Betty Stewart, Kathlyn Linsell, Brenda Harris, Mora Austin, K Clarke, A Bowzer, G Cutts, T Pritchard, J Lockwood, P Norman, H Poole, Betty Porter, G Pole, W Taylor, P Spence, J Mee and "Judy of Swansea". Stage management was in the hands of Mr W Jacques, Miss J Brockhurst had charge of the scenery and B P Springham superintended the lighting.
