"Morrison, Waldon, McKelvie and a Bridie" an illustrated history of the Citizens Theatre presented by Graeme Smith.

MHG member, Graeme Smith, co-author of Newton Mearns Through Time with Anne Robertson, is our speaker on Tuesday 3rd December when he will present an illustrated history of the first theatre built on the South Side of Glasgow. This is the Royal Princess`s Theatre  which opened in Gorbals in 1878 and continues today as the Citizens` Theatre.  Its success in pantomimes and plays is due to Messrs John Morrison, Rich Waldon, Harry McKelvie and James Bridie (real name Dr OH Mavor) with help from Winifred Bannister in the 1940s. Feel free to bring your own opera glasses, as the theatre`s very first name was Her Majesty`s Theatre and Royal Opera House.
