ELAPs wins PAL honours Reply to this News Item Print this Topic E-Mail this Topic

News ELAPs had an outstanding night at the Sixth Salute to Pantomime at Guthlaxton Community College in Wigston on 24th March, winning one award and being nominated in five categories overall, for last December's production of Aladdin. To cap it all, the company came joint second overall in the contest for the Blue Balloon Award, equal with Wycliffe Drama Group.

Mike Barclay won the award for best young actor, for his performance as the genie of the lamp.

Additional accolades went to Geri Wilson and Jason Billin for set design, Emma Heath for choreography, Hayley Masom for best supporting female role, and Larissa Oates for Principal Boy. Larissa had also been this year's winner of our own Nikki Dinnie award for on-stage achievement.

And this time, ELAPs was called upon to perform one of its numbers, Once in Every Show, with Gill Bowness and Jarrod Makin as the Empress and Emperor of Japan respectively, ably assisted and abetted by the antics of Celestine Stafford and Lesley Hesk as Ping and Pong in the background.

Hayley Masom, ELAPs chairperson, commented, "Very well done to everybody who helped to make Aladdin an award winning nomination show and a truly special well done to Sonya Oates, the director. It's a reflection on what a great leader and director she has been for the show which truly showcases the skills and ability of our little group. ELAPs undoubtedly has the smallest stage in the county, but has the biggest heart and the greatest bunch of people making it all happen!"

Don't forget that ELAPs' Spring production of Three One-Act Plays runs at East Leake Village Hall on Thursday 17th, Friday 18th and Saturday 19th May at 7.30 pm.

You can buy tickets at East Leake Post Office or The Olde Bakehouse, £5 or £3.50 for concessions. All tickets on Saturday are £5.

We're keeping our fingers crossed that ELAPs' Juniors will be displaying awards from the NANDA Youth Theatre Festival, since they will be repeating their performance of Tom Stoppard's abbreviated version of Shakespeare's 'The Merchant of Venice' to start the evening off. The NANDA competition will have been held on the weekend of 27th-28th April.

Then we have Gill Bowness' one-act play called 'Hindsight', which has been entered into NANDA's play-writing competition scheduled for 7th July. And to round things off, enjoy the black comedy, 'Miss Glossop's Weekend Break.'

All for now. As ever, check out www.elaps.co.uk for information and to drop us a line. You can come to meet us every Thursday in the Village Hall at 7.30 pm. Everyone is welcome.

Event Another date for the diaries playmates, in what is shaping up to be an action-packed summer.

On Friday 22 June NANDA (Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Drama Association) is holding its Annual Dinner and Award Ceremony at Cotgrave Place Golf Club. And this year promises to be an extra-special occasion, as the association is celebrating its sixtieth birthday. The theme will be “The Roaring Forties”, with entertainment based on that era, and there will be a prize awarded for the best (home produced) costume.

Tickets are priced at £21 per person and full details, including menu choices, are available from Madeline, who will be taking bookings from this Thursday 26 April, through to 31 May - which is the closing date. It’s always a fun evening, and we hope to take along a good ELAPS contingent to make our presence felt within the county drama scene.


Nottingham Poznan Theatrical Exchange Programme Reply to this News Item Print this Topic E-Mail this Topic

The theatre exchange programme is desgned to consolidate the links between
Nottingham and Polish town of Poznan through the exchange of performances
and cultural activities. The programme is aimed particularly at those unable
to exercise such talents because of adverse circumstance.

The Polish exchange programme was a huge success and NANDA expects to
continue with its ties with Poznan.

During the week of the Programme both the performances given and the
workshops staged gave special emphasis on the development of the technical
skills required by performers; as well as giving the audience a visual
experience not hampered by the constraints of language. The last couple of
days saw the group attending workshops with performers from the Arts Theatre
that culminated in a joint performance on Tuesday evening.

We all enjoyed the week and look forward to working together in the future!
