Buxton Drama School Festival. August 1938

The Times, London 25 August & High Peak News, Buxton 27 August

The previous year’s pop-up drama school had been acknowledged as having been a big success, so it was to be repeated this year. The drama school was held by the British Drama League, under the banner of the Buxton Theatre Festival.

The manager of Buxton Spa was allowing the school to again be held in the Playhouse.

Joyce Ruscoe, Fellow and Vice President of the Institute of Mime, was to hold daily classes in mime; expressive and historic movement; plus Choral and Dramatic Speech – all of which were very close to Irene Mawer’s heart.
