Winchester Amateur Operatic Society - WAOS - The Mikado - May 1914 - Guildhall Winchester


Programme cover for The Mikado 1914

This is our famous fan-shaped souvenir programme, printed for our production of The Mikado in May 1914 - which was the society's second foray onto the stage.  The original artwork designed by A. Clements spells out various pieces of relevant information such as the name of the society, the dates of the performances as well as the venue.  This is a photograph of the cover rotated at 45 degrees, but the original was cut with a curve in the style of an open fan, with a folded spine running along the lefthand side so that it could be opened as a booklet.


If it was a warm evening during the performances, this shape must have been very useful to keep the audiences cool, as they could have used it to fan themselves during the show!
