HOM&MADE SCENERY

Second production of young Bristol company THE last night of the Bristol

Catholic Players' production of ("when and Sullivan's "Ruddigore" on Saturday was attended by Bishop Rudderham of Clifton. The opera, which ran for a week at St. Mary's-on-the-Quay Hall. is the company's second production since they were formed 18 months ago by Fr. J. Buckley. parish priest of the Sacred Heart, Westbury-onTrym.

The production was remarkable for the amount of backstage work that went into it. Every item of scenery. every one of the 60 costumes, in fact every item needed to stage the opera was made at home by members of the society. The programme notes claimed that old railway sleepers, wood from demolished houses. and old sackcloth were used in the construction of the elaborate and spectacular sets.
