Pulham Players up for regional drama award

A south Norfolk amateur dramatics group is celebrating after being announced as a finalist in the region's National Operatic and Drama Association awards.

Pulham Players have been awarded with the best drama production in 'district 6' for their September 2010 production of Run For Your Wife, written by Ray Cooney.

And on Saturday, members will find out whether they have won the NODA award for the best overall drama production in the East Anglia region.

Pulham Players director, Peter Lavin, said, 'We are delighted with the award and it was a performance greatly enjoyed by our audiences as well as the NODA critic, Terry Rhymer.'

Mr Lavin has already got his sight on this September and has started making plans to direct the follow-on to the Run For Your Wife comedy, called 'Caught in the Net'.

The box office for the players spring production opens on Saturday at the Pulham Market Memorial Hall, from 9am to 11am. They are performing three one-act plays which have a common theme, 'Happiest Days of Our Lives'.

The first play 'Kids', written by John Morgan, is a larger than life look at growing up. An all junior production 'Around the World with Class 6', written by Nick Warburton, follows the exploits and adventures of Class 6 as they set sail and put all hands to the desks and embark on a voyage of discovery. In the final play, 'Maurice Dancing' by Michael Snelgrove, the audience will join Maurice as he prepares for the arrival of a very special royal visitor.
