Sports Night Concert

The annual sports night concert of Nelson College followed much the same lines as previous years, with massed orchestral, band, and choral work and gymnastic displays and a one-act play after the interval. These pics were taken at final rehearsal. The play, "A Fourth for Bridge", is set in the interior of an Italian military aircraft over the Mediterranean in 1942.


Songs from the shows


The German (David Sorenson) tells captured allied personnel, Kevin Martin (Yank), Michael Neale (Partisan), Angus Bradshaw (Hussar) and Richard Brooke (Air Force type), and an air-sick Italian (Paul McWhinnle), of the great Third Reich.


The prisoners take over but pilot (Jo Washbourn) was quite unconcerned.
