From the 1970s and into the 80s, they appeared in a variety of stage shows, from The Boyfriend to Hans Andersen, to Annie and Oliver Twist.

I’m guessing that most of them were members of the junior section of the South Shields Amateur Opera Society, what do you think?

Were you a member of the society in your younger days, what shows did you take part in?

There are smiles and scowls, as Dorothy leads a team of dancers, in what would appear to be a dance routine from The Wizard Of Oz, while the Artful Dodger leads his gang of “pick-pockets”. What are your favourite musicals from stage and screen?
