Notes

> No programme is held in archive for The Adventures Of Bongo Bungle so all details have been taken from the summer 1975 brochure for the Library Theatre, Scarborough, and the only review published for the play. Full cast details are unknown.
>
The Adventures of Bongo Bungle was a children's show performed on Saturday mornings during the 1975 summer season at the Library Theatre, Scarborough.
> Admission was 5p which included a lolly-pop and a badge.
> The second performance of the play saw more than 500 children turn up and a decision to stage a second performance immediately after the first to cope with the demand.
> The play was performed on a voluntary basis by both the acting company and stage management.
> The play was a serial with a new instalment each week. The success of the original production led to a second six-part serial continuing Bongo Bungle's adventures for the latter half of the summer season.
