Past Productions

May 1948.
Joe DiMaggio hits 3 consecutive home runs, Israel is declared an independent state and Alvechurch Dramatic Society produces its first play The Sea Urchin. We’ve asked Google for a script but we can’t find one. It must have been a success though because in 1968 it was revived for the society’s 20 year anniversary. Since then every year has seen at least one production from your favourite thespians.
