The lady playing 'Yum Yum' in the middle at the front was my great Auntie Alice (Jowett) in the 1920's

The year is around 1929 and the lady playing Yum Yum (front middle) is my great Aunt Alice Jowett. I'm not sure whether the man on the back row 2nd from right wasn't her brother Albert Jowett.

Having looked back through very old 'Sylvians' programmes I can now confirm that the year of this production was actually 1933. The cast were Minnie Walker as 'Katisha' Alice Jowett as 'Yum Yum' Hannah Bragg as 'Pitti Sing', Elsie Gibson as 'Peep Bo', David Argyle as 'Mikado', George W Wainwright as 'Pish Tush' and Clifford Barrass as 'Nanki Poo'. If anyone out there has any old programmes from 'Tingley Methodist Sylvians' or 'Tingley Sylvians Amateur Operatic Society' please get in touch, my collection is far from complete.
