Pasadena CA – Students of English history, drama, art and costume design will find in the production of “When Knighthood Was in Flower” items of great interest and educational value, in addition to the splendid evening of entertainment afforded by this play which brings back the rich period of romance and adventure of King Henry VIII of England and Mary Tudor, his rebellious daughter. The production is to open at the Pasadena Community Playhouse March third, and closes the twelfth. Under the direction of Miss Wilma Leithead, gifted artist and authority on costume design, all of the magnificent array of costumes are being carefully made after a research in which a large number of authentic sources were consulted. Students will see the exact raiment of the time.
It may be interesting to note that a gorgeous collection of pearls, which once belonged to Rudolph Valentino, is being used in the costumes.
