Panto 2017 Wrap-Up
The committee would like to congratulate everyone involved in this year's pantomime on a very successful show. Thanks to all for working so hard to create yet another fabulous production!

2017 / 2018 Productions
The excitement of planning our next productions starts now!
We urgently need an idea and Director for our Royston Arts Festival 2017 show, so please send your offers to the Secretary by 28th Feb 2017.
We'd also like to receive ideas/offers for a Spring production and for our next pantomime.

Our next play-reading will take place on Tuesday 21st March. More details will appear soon on our website and Facebook page.

CADS Drama Awards
Congratulations to our award winners: Georgina Wootten who won the Fred Sillence Award for outstanding contribution to the performing arts, and Faith Crockford who won The Lizzie Houghton Award for outstanding contribution to youth drama.
Georgina's award will be presented at one of the GStars rehearsals in the next few weeks. If you'd like to attend the presentation, look out for details on our Facebook page.
For further information about the awards and a list of previous winners, please see our website.

CADS Bursaries
The committee would like remind members that they can apply for bursaries towards the cost of drama-related courses or training. If you would like to submit an application or want more information, please contact the Secretary.

Drama Workshops
We'd love to arrange a Drama workshop which CADS members can take as a group. If you have an idea, please contact the Secretary.

The next CADS AGM will take place on 27th March 2017. Venue TBC.
As always, the entire committee will stand down at the AGM, so please do consider whether you would like to take on a position on the committee. We are particularly interested in nominations for Chair and Secretary as the current incumbents have decided not to stand for re-election.
