Administrative history

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).

Custodial history
