The Presidents Page
ext year finds us in our 75th year, seventy five years of a wonderful tradition of people doing their best. Their best at acting, their best at singing, at painting, at selling tickets, making tea, running raffles, accounting, booking tickets, selling advertising, learning lines, handling props, reading shows, playing music, rehearsing, making scenery, all at the same time as earning their living, bringing up families and doing their best to persuade their families to follow suit. We even have a member bringing the Society right up to date by chronicling the activities of the BCP on CD ROM, this should be available in the New Year and believe me it’s fascinating. This spirit that has survived and flourished for all this time is as strong as ever and I’m sure you will see why I’m so proud to be the President presenting “Guys and Dolls” at the Alhambra this year. All our efforts, no matter how hard the Society works, would come to nothing without the support of yourselves, our supporters. So, this note is about saying thank you, thanks from the Society to our audiences, thank you from me to all our members for their efforts over the years and making me a very proud President of a wonderful Society.

The story of GUYS AND DOLLS
athan Detroit, the leader of a group of illegal gamblers, is having difficulty in finding a suitable place to hold his crap games due to continuous hounding by Lt. Brannigan of the New York Police Force. The situation has become one of some urgency, due to there being a number of "out of town gamblers" in the neighbourhood who are expecting Nathan to lay on a game, among them, a visiting gambler of some repute, from Chicago, Sky Masterson. The only place that appears to be left where a game could be held, is a local garage, for which the owner is demanding a fee of one thousand dollars. Desperate for the money, Nathan tricks Sky into saying he could take any "doll" named to Havana, as a travelling companion - a bet of one thousand dollars is arranged, and much to Sky's consternation, Nathan selects Sarah Brown, a uniformed girl from the Save-A-Soul Mission. Sky wins his bet, however, and takes Sarah to Havana by guaranteeing to her the attendance of twelve sinners at a forthcoming meeting at the Mission Hall. The crap game ends up being played in a sewer, and it is here that Sky obtains his twelve sinners by betting on a throw of a dice, a thousand dollars against each man present attending the Mission meeting. Sky wins his bet, and an unprecedented situation is created by the attendance of the "Guys" at the Save-A-Soul Mission. Throughout the story Nathan is pursued by Miss Adelaide, a dancer at the Hot Box Nightclub - they have been engaged for fourteen years, during which time she has had to put up with excuse after excuse for putting off the happy day, the last straw being when he says he can't elope tonight because he has to attend a prayer meeting! All ends well, however, as the finale with its unusual developments reveals.

firstname.lastname@example.org Since 1927, The Bradford Catholic Players have been presenting shows and concerts in the City of Bradford. As part of wider celebrations to mark 75th anniversary of the society, a team of people have been working on a Digital Archive. The archive, stored on a Compact Disk and playable on any personal computer, contains every page of every post-war show programme along with quite literally thousands of press clippings, publicity leaflets, photographs, letters, dinner invitations, etc. The Digital Archive will be on sale in the new year at ÂŁ20 - profits raised will be used to boost the BCP's own funds. If you want to order a copy or you have BCP show programmes from 1927 to 1938 that you would be willing to loan to us for inclusion in the archive, please contact us on email@example.com
