York Mystery Plays in the Museum Gardens in August 2012 were produced by York Theatre Royal and the Riding Lights Theatre Company.  Some 1000 people and two professional actors were involved.  Staff and volunteers kindly gave information and material to this NCEM archive.   P hotographs of the rehearsals, taken by  local volunteers , are on  Flickr. Below is information about the scenes and the alternating casts (the Potters and Carpenters). Go to this page for twenty photographs from the Museum Gardens production (NCEM has many more photos).

Community Involvement in the plays was central .   Helen Hale, a member of the ensemble (a non-speaking part) appreciates the production: "Some of the innovations which made this production different from any of the preceding ones, whilst retaining a medieval-style text and in no way altering the familiar Biblical stories: - to emphasise the universality of the plays and their message, the cast wore costumes with a 1940s and 1950s flavour. The choice was particularly inspired by Stanley Spencer's well-known paintings of Biblical scenes incorporating images of real people from his home village of Cookham. - the spectrum of cast members was considerably broadened by the inclusion of a large number of children and young people, giving a refreshing and sometimes unexpected aspect to the performance! - the striking live performance throughout the play of specially-composed music performed by a 70-strong choir of local people and a brass band. All of this was intended to create an unforgettable experience." A play was written by Ged Cooper about the experience of being in the 2012 cast: see this link to the York   Press . Here is a link to a Youtube film about community involvement in the production. Interested in other casts?

Keith Cheesman:  “[This was] circa 1969. Within the local scene Palmer and Ronson stood out as potential superstars and I think they both had a desire to work together. However, Mick and Alan/Robert were both essential to their relevant groups, so the rehearsals were held in secret. I think the reason it never got past rehearsals was both Mick and Alan’s loyalty to their respective bands. I remember one session we were trying out a version of Coloured Rain by Traffic.”
