Including Joan Adams, Frank Holdsworth who is at the Hallé, Sylvia Schneck, Douglas Townshend as well as those from speech and drama including Helen Reynolds, Margaret Ghent and Rita Thorpe.
Tagged on the end is a praising review of the school's production of Mignon at the Lesser Free Trade Hall, conducted by Aylmer Buesst and produced by Sumner Austin.
