FIVE COUNTIES YOUTH FESTIVAL

Congratulations to SPYS (Sodbury Players Youth Section) on winning yet another festival – this time against two strong youth teams. Adjudicator, Francis Glynn, gave the Mike Bishop trophy to this team who once again showed outstanding teamwork, great choral and individual speech and imaginative direction in their production of ‘ Bodas de de Sangre’.

Make Performing Arts from Somerset with their devised piece ‘Countryside Pursuits’ were a younger team who showed witty appreciation of a bygone era and The Romsey School Community Youth Theatre in Mark Wheeller’s  ‘ Butcher, Butcher Burning Bright’ presented a disturbing story that in its telling showed there is no need for settings and furniture when there is a youth group who can turn themselves into windows, doors wheelbarrows etc.

Congratulations also to Totton Festival of Drama who ran the festival for the first time and provided a welcoming, efficient and generous atmosphere in their beautiful Hanger Farm Arts Centre so that all teams and audience could appreciate and become involved in three very different productions.  A day of drama to remember.
