Success in Glossop


Both ACT I and ACT II rounded off their one-act play tours by going to Glossop for the Partington Festival. Despite the very hot conditions that caused some moustache malfunctions, we came away with some well deserved prizes.    Eloise Regan won the Partington Theatre Trophy for the best youth actress. Alex Swinton was awarded a certificate for Best Supporting Youth actor. Certificates of Merit were given to Nick Dawson, Luke Holland & Charlotte Conway for their roles as the ‘Vikings’. Both Adam Swinton & Naaman Carr were nominated for Best Youth Actor, while Charlotte Reyner & Georgina Dalgliesh were both nominated for Best Supporting Actress and  Ben Hughes was nominated for Best Supporting Actor.
