Dates of existence



Margaret Rushton was born in England and came to Canada in 1930. She first became active in theatre when she joined the Vancouver Little Theatre and served as president of that organization for five years (1949-1954). She also acted in several plays during her years with the Theatre. Rushton became a member of the Dominion Drama Festival National Executive and served as president of the British Columbia Drama Association for eight years. She was very interested in theatre for children and joined the Holiday Theatre Company shortly after it was established, later becoming Tour Coordinator for the Company. When Holiday Theatre was incorporated into the Playhouse Theatre Centre, Rushton became Public Relations Officer and toured B.C. organizing tours for the company. In 1971, Rushton retired and began to write a history of the Holiday Theatre.
