Civic Theatre memorabliia

The Wagga Wagga City Library local studies collection
has an incomplete number of civic theatre programmes dating from when the theatre opened in 1963 up to 2007.
The programmes are interesting from a historical and design perspective. The two shown here are productions presented by Wagga High school sometime between 1968-1970. The cover designs reflect the overall visual design look of the period, using bright colors and bold lines.
Theatre programmes could be of great interest to family historians as they list the cast, crew and directors of the productions.
Were you in either of these productions and what were your memories ? or if you were in the audience, what do you remember about the night- a favourite line, actor scene or song ? write to me at with your fave moments from any production since the theatre opened.
