A huge thank you also goes out to Tom Dunn who created a fantastic lighting plot which fully complemented their performance.

They were well rewarded with three awards: "The Audience Award" for the play most enjoyed, The Lydia Durston Trophy" for "Best Endeavour" and "The Eyris Jones Youth Memorial Shield" for Best Youth Production.

They have now qualified to take part in the Four Counties Drama Final in Pewsey in Wiltshire on April 21st.
