We are thrilled to announce that our festival production 'The Extraordinary Revelations of Orca the Goldfish' by David Tristram, came a very close runner up with just one point dividing us and the winning team from Woking.

Out of eleven entries, we thought it was a great result. Not only did we get the NDFA Council Trophy for runner up but also the John Scowen Award for Comedy and the Audience Appreciation award when all audience members who bought season tickets get to vote on their favourite production of the week. Thanks to all members and friends who supported us during this festival period.

Congratulations to the cast and crew of last year's autumn production, 'The Odd Couple - Female Version' by Neil Simon. We were nominated in the category of Best Drama in the NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association) award ceremony.

We didn't win, but we were thrilled to be considered. Onward and upward!

Stepping Out (Harris)

This good-natured comedy from Richard Harris chronicles several months in the life of a beginners' dance class. Each of the eight students, who come from a variety of backgrounds, has her...or his... own reason for joining. For instance, Maxine, a confident, fast-talking saleswoman is there on doctor's orders, while self-sacrificing Andy participates because it is the only thing she does for herself. Whatever the cause, they make a point of coming every week to chat, relax and, if they can manage it, to learn a couple of dance steps.

Led by Mavis, their eternally patient instructor, and accompanied by the acerbic pianist Mrs. Fraser, the students (who range from hopeless to competent) strive to master the basics of dance. But the steps and routines are just the background for the real focus of the play - the relationships and interactions of these ten very different people.

By their final performance, not only have the class members developed some degree of skill, but they have also overcome the inhibitions, awkwardness and personality conflicts that have kept them out of sync.
