Suffield Players History -- The sixties


We had listed in our programs that Arsenic and Old Lace was produced in 1967, but some old newspaper clippings in Roger Loomis' early Players photo collection puts the play as our 22nd show and the year 1964.  In addition, it lists Alan Fuller playing Teddy Roosevelt, Doris Atkinson as Martha and Joan Bunting as Abby.


Player productions were mounted twice a year until 1983 when Tartuffe began a new tradition of a "three-play season." Because plays were regularly presented in the spring and fall, we have little information of what was occurring during the winters between '62 and '72.  We may assume that preparations were underway for the spring productions of The Third Best Sport and The Waltz of the Toreadors, among others.


The Players present Never Too Late.  Cast includes Allan Fuller (early President of 1958) and Dottie Fitzgerald who 3 years later would lead the Players' Board.
