Studio Theatre celebrated 60 years of staging plays in Salisbury by throwing a party in our theatre in Ashley Road. The Sparkling Sixtieth gala and dinner in March welcomed old and new members as well as audience members and included dancing to the Rhythm Blasters, and an auction of signed theatrical memorabilia, run by the chairman.
We bopped until we dropped, the champagne flowed, a fine supper was served, a beautifully decorated cake was cut and the auction resulted in fierce competitive bidding for items signed by such luminaries as Ian McKellan, Alan Bennett and Honor Blackman.
The photo shows members of the committee cutting the cake; (l to r) George Goulding, Claire Brooks, Alistair Faulkner (Premises Manager), Peter Mitchell (Head of Fundraising and LTG Rep), Peter Kelly (Chairman), Hugh Abel (Secretary), Jackie Pilkington (Director of Productions, current season), Sarah Kirkpatrick ( Marketing Manager), and Chris Hawley ( Director of Productions, forthcoming season).
