My mother who was a pupil at Bala County School for girls remembers a school trip from Bala to Dolgellau to see the production of McBeth in 1941 at Dr Williams School.
" Even the war has its compensations. We could not expect in normal times to see Sybil Thorndyke, Lewis Casson and The Old Vic Company on our stage, nor could we expect to see Sybil Thorndyke in each classroom to see what occupants were doing and to declare that she could never do that particular subject!" - July 1941 School Magazine
