AT the recent President’s Party at Ilkley Playhouse, Roger Davy welcomed nearly 80 members and volunteers to thank them for creating another successful year in the life of the local theatre. Every aspect of the theatre was represented from the Trustees, the actors, the many and various backstage workers, the box office and office staff and the class tutors. Roger has now retired as president, a position he has held since 2011, and was pleased to install Dick Hebbert, a long-time Playhouse member and actor.
