Lusaka Theatre Club, 1970













Here is a little tribute to the Lusaka Theatre Club and their production of the Sound of Music in Christmas 1970, the year, we are reminded by the programme, in which Zambia prepared to go metric. We were living near the Anglican Cathedral in Lusaka, but we would soon move to Makeni. I might have been in this production (my brother, Pierre was), but the rehearsals were just a bit too late.

The Concert Orchestra was the 2nd Battalion Zambia Regiment.
