Vale Joyce Holmes

A life member of the School of Arts, Joyce Holmes, died recently at the age of 104.She will always be remembered as the director of our first public full-length play – Home and Beauty, in May 1945. The play was received enthusiastically, described by the local press as “scintillating   comedy” and Mrs Holmes’ direction drew praise. Home and Beauty marked the beginning of a long tradition of presenting fine theatre.

Mrs Holmes was also involved with the Wagga Shakespeare Club and a number of other local organisations.
