Our junior drama club performed “Burglars” by David Rudkin at the Norden Farm Arts Centre in Maidenhead last week. This received a very enthusiastic response from the audience and our young performers were delighted to be nominated for the Adjudicator’s award. The Adjudicator praised the commitment, talent and creativity of our very young cast. She loved the way the cast created the location by their reactions and was impressed by the strong rhythms and well-modulated choral speaking. She praised the excellent teamwork, the strong visual images and the much-needed dramatic tension they created. She commented favourably on the design aspects, particularly the creative make-up, designed by Poppy F. Particular credit must also be given to Poppy, who stepped in at one-day’s notice to play a major role, when Emilie L was sadly taken ill.
Mrs Harris would like to thank and congratulate the cast and technical team on a really impressive show.
