Name of creator
The Eastern Command Players was an amateur theatre group formed around 1952 by Halifax military personnel. The group staged at least two performances; Dover Road was performed at the Barrington Street Armouries in 1953 and Blithe Spirit was performed at the Garrison Theatre in Windsor Park in 1954. The group was organized by a president who worked with other volunteers to manage productions. Known presidents of the Eastern Command Players include Capt. G.A. Penchard (ca. 1953).
The fonds was donated by James Paul on 28 April 1978. Complete custodial history is unknown.
