Award Winning Leicester Drama Groups

Award Winning Leicester Drama Groups

Congratulations to both our Ratae Co-operative Players & Whetstone Drama Group who have won awards in this years NANDA (Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Drama Association) Play of the Year Competition for 2019/20.

The "Peter and Joan Martin Award/Front of House Award" went to the Ratae Co-operative Players for their play "As Long As They're Happy".

Commendations were also received for both Hannah Batra (Pearl) in the category of Best Supporting Actress and Keith Rowe (Hermann Schneider) in the category of Best Supporting Actor.

The "Stephen Godward" Trophy went to Whetstone Drama Group for Outstanding Youth Performance for "Harry in the Blitz Club" which was played by Tom Morley

We all appreciate what a difficult year this has been for our drama groups who have not been able to do what they enjoy best - entertaining us!  However, they have been making the best of the current situation with on-line quizzes, poetry reading and on-line rehearsals.  I am sure the awards have been a welcome boost and on behalf of the Southern Membership & Community Council and Central England Co-operative we wanted to say congratulations and well done!
