NEWS FROM THE FESTIVALS
Everyone was overwhelmed with emotion and we were given fantastic feedback from the adjudicator. It won the award for 'Best Bushey Senior Play' and came runner up in the award for 'Best Presentation' for our set and design. Furthermore, our director won the Award of 'Best Senior Girl' and the actor playing 'Tom' won an award for 'Strong Presence Throughout'.
The audience loved it so much they've asked if we would perform it again, so it's something we hope to reprise in the near-future! Thanks so much for a great play to work with!

The awards were for Best Production, the Audience Award (The Edge received more votes than all the other eight entries put together), Best Youth Production and my two young actors, (Natasha Graham and Noah Harrison) shared the Award for Best Youth Actor. Fingers crossed for the next round!

NEW SCRIPTS - APRIL / MAY 2013
You’ve seen the movie and heard the Queen soundtrack, now enjoy Alan Christison’s hilarious new pantomime version of the screen classic! You’ll encounter familiar faces like Flash and Dale and their adversary, Emperor Ming the Merciless; then some new ones: Dame Aerial Gordon (Flash’s Mum), the eccentric Professor Blastoff and a very funny comic duo, local fishwives Ellie and Nellie.
Emperor Ming’s evil plan is to cancel Christmas, Easter and Love, so he kidnaps Santa, Easter Bunny and Cupid. Meanwhile Flash is having problems proposing to Dale. When both of them rush to save Santa & Co, assisted by his Mum and Professor Blastoff, they are themselves captured by Ming’s ally and former girlfriend, the Bird Queen, on Planet Mongo. Can Flash save the Universe and manage to pop the question? You bet he can!
In his will, Windy Miller leaves his mill and money to his two eldest sons George and Terry, and nothing to his widow, Wendy Miller, leaving her destitute. His eldest son Peter receives the family cat Tiddles. But this is no ordinary cat. Tiddles is transformed into Puss in Boots, who not only talks but is the coolest cat in the land. When Peter falls in love with Princess Crystal, Puss transforms Peter into the Marquis of Carabas, and arranges for both of them to go to the royal castle..
Meanwhile the land is terrorised by the dreaded Ogre Grumbleguts whose favourite food is children. Puss arranges for Peter, Wendy and their pals Shaz and Gaz, a couple of wannabe pop stars, to be admitted to the Ogre’s palace. And as for the Ogre himself - well, Puss has a cunning plan!

Electronic scripts now comprise nearly70% of our output. Customers are simply finding it so much easier to print off their own scripts for a discounted price, and of course save themselves the postage, which can often be £9 or more. Customers can get reading copies electronically for £10, although there are restrictions - please contact us for details.
This means that if you decide to put on a show you can:
EITHER purchase paper scripts at £6 each plus postage. A set of fifteen scripts would cost £90.00 plus postage. One-act plays cost £4 each.
OR purchase an electronic script and print your own. This costs £75.00 for a full-length pantomime or play. An electronic one-act play is priced according to the number of characters. For example, a large-cast play costs £50, but a two-hander would cost much less. The minimum charge for an electronic script is £10.
