Programme Covers of Plays

Would you believe, in the six years we lived in Singapore, between 1963 and 1969, my wife and I went to the theatre 82 times! As well as two large civilian groups – the Stage Club and The Sceneshifters, which put on regular plays and musicals respectively and consisted of a fair number of teachers – the army, navy and air force had their own dramatic societies and G&S groups.

And Alexandra Secondary School (which later became Bourne School) and St John's School put on regular shows. In addition, the Singapore Schools Music Association thrived for a short time, gathering together a number of primary schools to present impressive events.

Prior to perhaps passing on my collection of 82 programmes to the Singapore Archives, I have scanned all the covers for my personal archives. If any of those who were in Singapore and perhaps involved in some of the school productions would like it, I'd be happy to scan the whole programme into a pdf and forward it to them.

Bukit Timah Road would often flood182 viewsBukit Timah Road would often flood, especially when the monsoon rains coincided with the tide coming up from the sea. Enterprising Singaporeans would offer to 'push out' vehicles that became stationary in the floodwater, making sure they pushed your exhaust pipe beneath it, ensuring a handsome tip from grateful motorists!
