Snowqueen 1963  clippings from the Coventry Evening Telegraph 1963

'Snow Queen' at Templars School ...

Wet dish cloths were used as missiles, someone fell into a bath tub full of water and was 'ironed out', another dived into a washing machine and a familiar cry 'Everybody Out !' resounded as the manager of the Chinese laundry became troublesome ...

The Chinese laundry scene was only one of several scenes from 'The Snow Queen', acted by over 150 pupils on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in the Summer Term of 1963. Do you remember? Were you in the play?
