Our latest production, Strangers on a Film, has just won two awards (including Best Individual Performance) and received three other nominations at this year's Cambridge Festival of Drama!
Click here for more information and for details of our plans to perform it as part of a unique evening's entertainment at Royston Arts Festival.
And exciting news for all you boys and girls - there will be a Town Pantomime in 2022! Emma Daintrey and Louise Atkins will be presenting a version of Snow White in January (dates to be confirmed). Auditions for this will take place on Monday 4 October in the Drama Studio at King James Academy Royston, Senior Site, with auditions for chorus (aged 12+) at 7.00 p.m. and for principals and cameo roles at 8.00 p.m. Watch this space and our newsletter for more details soon!
By the way, our previous production, the one-act play Seven Movies by local author Roy Maddox, won three awards at the 2021 Welwyn Drama Festival, and received glowing praise from adjudicator Walker Ewart! If you missed the show at the festival, you can now catch it on YouTube at https://youtu.be/MyL2L04uefA
In the mean time, we continue to organise a series of other events and meetings; these have been online during lockdown but we are resuming "live" meetings again at the end of July (click here for details) though we shall also have facilities for people to join in via Zoom if they prefer.
We also produced, during lockdown, two versions of our virtual cabaret CADaret!, which we posted on YouTube, one during the 2020 Royston Arts Festival, and one in time for the Christmas period. These were both a mixture of songs, poems, sketches, monologues and general silliness, recorded on film and edited together for posting. Both are still available; to view them, search for "CADaret" on YouTube, or just click here
