ONE ACT PLAY FESTIVAL.

Performances will begin at 5.00pm. (house opens 4.30pm):
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. The splendid St Bede’s High School played host to the One Act Plays for it’s first three years. 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.
The 2018 festival was held again at St Bede’s High School on Saturday 29th September and we were delighted to welcome the lovely Susan Mackay as adjudicator.
Things were done slightly differently in 2018 as we presented 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.
