LOUTH Playgoers are set to mark a major anniversary with a speciall day next week.

On March 19 the Playgoers reached their 80th anniversary.

And to mark that fact they will be opening the Riverhead Theatre all day on Thursday, March 29 so that friends and supporters can have the opportunity to visit them.

Memorabilia of photographs, programmes, press cuttings and posters will be on display in the studio and in the foyer.

A Playgoers video of past years together with video tapes of earlier productions will also be shown.

“It is a happy coincidence that our production of Jekyll and Hyde has its opening night on the exact date of this 80th anniversary. It is fitting that it is being presented by one of Playgoers most experienced directors.

“During those 80 years there have been many thousands of people who have supported Playgoers on stage, behind the scenes, front of house and, of course, in the auditorium itself.

“To mark this very special occasion, we are opening the theatre for the whole day on March 29.

“Do join us for these celebrations of 80 very special years,” they added.

Light refreshments are being offered to visitors throughout the day, and a ‘Celebration Quiz Night’ during the evening will round off the occasion.
