We are so pleased to announce that the MYT Intermediates took away two prizes from the Drama Association of Wales festival of one act plays which was held in Berriew at the end of April 2019.
The award for Best Youth Production went to the cast and crew of ‘Interlude’
The award for Best Young Actor went to Reid Corbett for his fabulous portrayal of a drum named Roddy Wallop!
The piece was written for the group and Directed by Penny Jones, with Harry Evans taking charge of the technical requirements (and also Martin Creaven from berriew for the lightning on the night) Abi Johns fade a fantastic assistant yet again,as well as taking the role of ‘mum’
The Adjudicator was Nick Wilkes GoDA, and many thanks to him for such a wonderful assessment of the group’s work. He said that as his three children approach the age where they may be interested in joining a youth theatre, he wished that he lived nearer to Welshpool so they could be part of MYT!
-A fantastic endorsement of all the teamwork he had seen on stage and the very high standard of performance
Synopsis of ‘Interlude’
It is five years since Mr Brown passed away, and now his grandchildren have accidentally stumbled upon his old legacy in the props store of the provincial theatre where he was the stage manager. They are amazed to find that he had forged a relationship with the objects he loved and cared for,
But all their excitement is dissipated when mum persuades them that their imaginations have run Wild after being in the rehearsals for ‘the Wizard of Oz’ – and its left to the imagination, of both children and audience alike, to decide whether what happened was real or Fantasy.
