Notes

The Christmas That Nearly Wasn't was the first children's Christmas play to be presented at the Library Theatre, Scarborough, since Alan Ayckbourn's Dad's Tale in 1960.
During the 1974 and 1975 winter seasons at the Library Theatre, Scarborough, the Library Committee did not make the venue's Concert Room available; this room being where the Library Theatre had been based since 1955. In its place, a smaller room on the same floor - the Lecture Room - was offered but which could not incorporate theatre-in-the-round with productions performed three-sided (thrust).
