ONE ACT PLAY FESTIVAL.

Sunday 29th September 2019 at Lowther Pavilion, Lytham St Annes.

Performances will begin at 6.00pm. (house opens 5.30pm):

Participating societies to be announced.

Adjudication then prizegiving.

The inaugural festival in 2016 involved several amateur dramatic societies performing their one act plays for an audience and professional adjudicator. As with the music and speech and drama section of the festival earlier in the year, the splendid St Bede’s High School played host to the One Act Plays. This is a competitive festival and the societies worked hard to win the accolades of Best Play, Best Director, Best Actor (male), Best Actor (female), Best Staging and Best Sound & Lighting.
This year the 2018 festival will be held again at St Bede’s High School on Saturday 29th September and we are delighted to welcome the lovely Susan Mackay as adjudicator.

We have done things slightly differently this year by presenting one production in a Theatre Showcase. ACross the Boards performed an original play, ‘Truth’, written by drama school Director Anna Cross. This was a wonderful piece of theatre which allowed its young cast to experience performing on stage in front of an audience and an adjudicator. Susan Mackay was delighted to award the following trophies;

BEST LEAD ACTOR – Olivia Jagger

BEST SUPPORT ACTOR – Tia Hodson

Adjudicator’s Award for MOST PROMISING ACTOR – Lola Connor-Emmott

 

We are proud to confirm that the 2019 festival will be held at the Lowther Pavilion in Lytham St Annes and look forward to announcing the participating societies and adjudicator.
