One Act Play Festival Semi-Finals
Further to their success in the Quarter Finals, our cast, up against fierce competition in the Semi-Finals, came second to the brilliant production from the Leicester Little Theatre of Zoo Story, with Ken Huggett and colleagues. A bus load of MHDS members went to Burton on Trent to support our team of actors, sound and lighting team, stage management, designers, wardrobe and props teams. The director, Neil Lovegrove, said that the journey through this competition has been the most amazing fun. He thanked everyone who had worked on the play as well as those members who came to support the MHDS team.
The MHDS production of Lions & Donkeys took part in the Quarter Finals of The One Act Play Festival at The Little Theatre, Leicester, on Sunday 14th April. It was up against two plays from Abbey Theatre, The Armistice Theatre, The Oadby Drama Society and The Leicester Drama Society.
Great acting by Neil Lovegrove, Simon Howard, Ben Reid and Alistair Beeson again proved dividends with MHDS finishing runner up to LDS, and, as a result, progressing to The Semi Finals of the competition on 4th May at The Brewhouse Arts Centre, Burton on Trent.
