Administrative history

A meeting was held December 27, 1939 at the home of Mrs. A.D. Meek to create the "Salmon Arm Little Theatre Association." Officers elected included President Tom Prescott, Vice President Lois Aitcheson, Secretary-Treasurer E. Doe. D. Thomson was responsible for scenery and Elsie Buchan for costumes. The group practiced in the local high school. Performance proceeds were donated to the Canadian Red Cross Society. The group was a member of the BC Drama Association and the UBC Play Lending Library. A set of bylaws titled "Rules and Constitution" was adopted in 1941.

A group of interested people met in 1946 to consider the revival of the former Little Theatre Association. The executive included T. Prescott, Fred Gorse, Miss H. Chambers, H.M Bigwood and Mrs. Yerburgh. The purpose of the club was to produce dramatic, operatic and musical plays and sketches. Members re-drafted a constitution and by-laws.
