Shakespeare Society - Unknown play

No details are supplied but clearly the Handcross W. I. Shakespeare Society are putting on a performance in the Parish Hall.
Holding a bunch of flowers over to the right is Mrs Edith Biggs, and I am just wondering if the little girl is Mary Johnson from Nashlands!
Please can anyone identify the other performers or name the play?

This was circa 1953 - Shakespeare's "A Winter's Tale".
Mary Johnson is the child playing Prince Mamillius (not sure of spelling), aged eight.
The producer was Miss Daphne Dengate and rehearsals took the best part of two years.

Other members are Mrs. Hoad, Miss Phyllis "Mollie" Dengate, Mrs. Turner, Mrs Funnell, Mrs. Hazelgrove, Mrs. Jefferies.. plus my Mum, Vi Johnson.
I cannot recall the other names at the moment, but will keep thinking!
