Aberdare Boys’ Grammar School

Music & Drama

Old School

Shakespearean Production, Spring April 1905
A Midsummer Night’s Dream

In the early days of the school, the first Head Master W. Jenkyn Thomas, instituted a series of ambitious dramatic productions. Currently, we know the details of just the 1905 and 1906 plays. Casting was easier in the years prior to 1914, when the school had both boys and girls to take the parts. By clicking on the small page images below, you will be able to read details of the 1905 event, including the cast members.
