Programme of Blackwell's Christmas '61 production of 'Where The Rainbow Ends'

Outer page-pair, inner page-pair.

"Where the Rainbow Ends was originally a stage play with a great deal of incidental music; it was then turned into a book, and a very attractive edition was produced in the early 1920s, published by Hodder and Stoughton, with illustrations by Leo Bates.

The play was first performed at the Savoy Theatre in December 1911, and a young Noel Coward was in the cast.  Following the success of the play - which ran every Christmas, professionally, until 1959 - the producer of the children, Italia Conti, was persuaded to set up a stage school, which still exists.
Many of the stalwarts of the British acting world - Jack Hawkins, Clive Dunn, and many, many others - appeared in 'Rainbow' at some time or other.  It was staged at the Holborn Empire until that theatre was bombed during the war, and it toured extensively." - VL

If there are any general questions about "Rainbow",  Valerie, an authority on the subject, will be delighted to answer them - "Contact me".
