Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Reminiscent of the American radio series Let's Pretend, the weekly half-hour Canadian TV show Golden Age Players featured a talented troupe of child performers enacting classic fairy tales and kiddie stories. Among the "contributing authors" were Hans Christian Andersen and Oscar Wilde. The series' title referred to the "Golden Age" of Elizabethan theatre; accordingly, the costumes, created by Jacqueline Boss (the mother of series director Valentine Boss), were decidedly Shakespearean in design. Golden Age Players was presented by the CBC from October 14 to December 23, 1957.
