    The Festival Club with Pot Luck Yeomen of the Guard

    A smaller than usual Festival Club heard an extremely well-sung Yeomen with Savoynetters Samuel Silvers (Jack Point), Josh and Gina Leichtung (Shadbolt and Elsie), Jackie Richards (Kate) and Bob Richards (as First AND Second Yeoman). All acquited themselves nobly as did the rest of the cast!
