At the recent Cheshire Theatre Guild awards Ashton Hayes Theatre Club were nominated for 6 awards and were delighted when they were declared the winners for Best Dramatic Achievement and for Best Supporting Actor — Mike Howard. Both awards came from the wonderful production of The Accrington Pals that was performed at the Community Centre in October last year.
They also received 3 nominations for their production of The Cripple of Inishmaan and were delighted to win the Adjudicators award for the Best Double Act — Stuart McNeil and Andrea Jones for the roles of Jonny Pateen Mike and Mammy.
About 18 amateur companies take part in the Guild Awards, with each production seen by a qualified adjudicator and it is on the basis of points awarded across a range of acting and technical skills that the nominations are made. Some of the companies produce many more plays per annum, so Ashton Hayed success is all the more special given that they put on only two shows a year.
The next production to be seen in Tarvin will be on October 23rd to 25th and is an adaptation of the children's best-selling book by Joan Aitken, The Wolves of Willoughby Chase, first published in 1962. Described as a 'tale of double-dyed villainy with right triumphant in the end', the new adaptation will combine melodrama, comedy, adventure and spookiness!
Tickets are £8 for adults and £6 for children and you can get them by ringing Yvette on 01829 751943 or 07707 830286. It might seem a bit premature booking so early but the performances are always sold out.
Tarvin Community Centre is delighted to have such a talented group performing on its stage. They are highly competent and very ambitious — amateur dramatics at their very best.
