Thrybergh players - left to right back row - Bill Mountford, Doris Rickett, Connie Drabble, Jimmy Harold (he had a shop below St. Gerrards on Doncaster Road), Lily Cawdron, John (I think they called him John, he was definitely Hodson) seated Amy Swan, Doris Keeley ,unknown.

Local Theatre Groups have a well established history throughout the British Isles, they provided entertainment, and also raised funds for many a worthy cause. The players themselves would take great pride with each production, and it is amazing how they produced backdrops, props, and period costumes on often a non existent budget. As can be seen on the programme kindly sent in by Mollie Uttley, a nights entertainment could be had for two bob in the 1950's.
;Like the Thrybergh Players most local Village Theatre was performed in the Church or Parish Halls. The Church Hall in Thrybergh is on Park Lane. Many of the people in the group above would also be very active in other areas concerning St. Leonard's Church .
So if you have a memory of The Thrybergh Players  please send it in

Millicent Page of Thrybergh was also a member of the Thrybergh players, and I am sure we will uncover quite a few more who enjoyed  this activity.















Geoff Walker of Thrybergh was a member of the Thrybergh players in the 1950's and has kindly sent along the following two photos, and if anyone can help with the identity of the people below it would be greatly appreciated.
