Finneians Rainbow 3_RTP_20 Mar 13 _SFW

This is the cast from the play ” Finian’s Rainbow ” put on by the chorus of Pensacola High School.  I am not sure of the year, but it is either 1969 or 1970.  I have a 1970 Pensacola Annona yearbook and I will go back to see if that was the year.  I do not have any close-ups of the actors, only group views.  I have several other negatives and I will see what other groups are there.  I recognize on of the girls in the group and I think that she was a year or two older than me.  If anyone remembers this play from PHS, please let us hear from you.  Thanks for looking … Frank

Here are some photos of the Pensacola High School Chorus.  I scanned these several years ago and did not bother to put a year to these photos, but I am sure that someone out there will recognize someone in these photos and help us out with the year.

I did not bother cropping out the people in the back and framing them better. I thought that showing all of the frame is interesting and you get to see more of what is going on …

Annie Get Your Gun …

with 8 comments

Back in the 1960’s,  the Pensacola High School Chorus used to stage musicals and they were really a production!  They were as good as what you saw on Broadway … at least I thought so and all of the thousands of people that would attend the two or three shows that they would put on.  These photos are from the production of ” Annie Get Your Gun “.  I do not know the year or who the leads were.   Here are several more photos from this production …

Notice how much detail went into creating all of the sets that were used in the play.  Since this was back in the 1960’s, I am sure that the shop classes would have had to construct all of the sets.  I am sure that they did not have the luxury of picking up a phone and renting what they needed to produce all of the sets and props that were needed to create the play.  Here are a few more showing the costumes and make-up being applied …

Everyone looks as if they are having a good time and the girls are very pretty.   As usual, I do not know who any of the people are … I will go through the old Annona yearbooks that I have laying around and see if I can find some information for everyone.  I know that I should have done that before I posted the photos, but I did not.  I have more negatives from some of the other plays that they put on, however they are not in the best shape and it is going to take me some time to get them ready to post.  I hope you enjoy this bit of nostalgia … thanks for looking and as usual all comments are appreciated … Frank
