A successful night for the Actonian’s!

This year’s AAD One Act Festival was hosted by the Actonians in Iron Acton Parish Hall.

Act 1 of Top Girls, performed by the Actonians, not only won the Ruth Perrett Award for costume but also won the Alexander Trophy for the overall winning production.  The play will now go on to the Quarter finals in Burnham on Sea on 9th April.

The Junior Actonians were also very successful winning the AAD Award for Youth Drama and the Adjudicator’s Award for their production of Blood.  Alice Grubb also won the Denning Award for Youth. The Juniors will go on to the next round on 29th April in Filton.

There will be a further opportunity to see Top Girls in May when the whole three act play will be staged in Iron Acton.

We are always keen to welcome new members.  If you are interested in joining then please email actonians@outlook.com or visit our website www.actonians.co.uk
