CARNOUSTIE Theatre Club swept the board winning all prizes available at the SCDA Northern Division One Act Play Festival in the Webster Memorial Theatre, Arbroath on Saturday.

CTC Adults performed ‘Daisies’ by Lisa Nicoll. Lisa is formerly a member of the theatre club and is now a successful actress and playwright.

CTC Youth performed ‘Sandgran’ by Brian McGuire.

Also taking part were Kaimes Youth from Montrose with ‘Death of an Angel’ by Helen E. Sharman.

The Adjudicator was Ronnie Mackie.

The overall winner goes on to represent the Northern District at Divisional Festival in Birnham on March 24 to 26, and best placed youth play represents the Northern Division at the Divisional Youth Festival in Orkney on March 12.

First on stage were CTC Youth who looked like they were enjoying every minute of their award-winning performance. Some great comedy moments were achieved by this young cast, who had been expertly directed by Carolyn Cheape.

Next were Kaimes Youth Theatre from Montrose with their very dramatic ‘Death of an Angel’. There were good all round performances here.

Last but certainly by no means least it was CTC Adults with ‘Daisies’. This play had the audience in complete silence, a very thought- provoking and emotional play directed by the talented Betty Gibson.

The trophies were presented on Saturday night by Malcolm Ord of Glaxo Drama Club, a long-serving member of SCDA and treasurer of Angus District.

Festival organiser John Fraser said “The participants really enjoyed the event and the excellent facilities here at the Webster Theatre. We wish our local representatives all the best in the next round of the competition.”

Results were: Ian Mackay Trophy - first place, Carnoustie Theatre Club; The Kay Fleming Cup - second place, Carnoustie Theatre Club Youth; The Youth Trophy – Carnoustie Theatre Club Youth; The Shiells Trophy - Stage presentation- Carnoustie Theatre Club.
