Theatre for Children

The photographs in this series depict theatrical productions put on by the Recreation Department and the Junior League of Edmonton. The program was called Theatre for Children, and most productions took place at Victoria Composite High School, though a few were also held at the Jubilee Auditorium. In the 1960s the program expanded to include The Playground Players, which offered outdoor theatrical productions in the community. This series includes photographs of most of the productions undertaken from 1954 until 1966, when the Junior League handed the program over to the Junior Arts Council. The series also includes photographs of dance workshops for children and a concert held at Borden Park.
