Youngsters at Whitby’s Caedmon School get ready for the dress rehearsal of Mikado in a photo from the Whitby Gazette archives.
Taken in July 1997 by Sarah Tully, the photo show students Laura Bridges, 13, Elly Dunn, 14 and Donna Shaw, 14 ready to hit the stage in all their Japanese attire.
Mikado is an 1885 comic opera in two acts, by Gilbert and Sullivan.
