Get involved in one-act contest

THE Nottingham and Notts Drama Association is to stage a major one-act play festival next year.

The festival, to be staged at Chilwell Olympia Theatre, at Chilwell, Nottingham, on March 23 and 24, is linked to the All England Theatre Festival.

This will enable the winning group to proceed to the area finals of the All Englanf Festival, and possibly to the subsequent British final, to be held next year in Harrogate.

Groups can submit one-act plays or a selected act from their scheduled three-act productions.

Festival organiser Bob Wildgust stated: “We are particularly keen to encourage entries not only from Nottinghamshire but also Derbyshire, giving such groups the chance to partake in the All England Festival.”

The festival hopes to attract entries from not only established groups but also community ventures, stage schools, church and village enterprises.

Further details can be obtained from Bob Wildgust at rwildgust@hotmail.co.uk or on 0115 9291077. The final date for receipt of entries is January 31.
