RECOGNISING the contribution made backstage to a number of its successful productions, Carnoustie Theatre Club has awarded its Youth Achievement Trophy for 2012 to Ben Harper.

Ben, who is pictured receiving the award at the club’s annual general meeting from previous winner Alex Wells and outgoing club president, David Cheape, has worked quietly in the background supporting cast and producers alike in a variety of roles, and is a popular winner of the trophy.

At the same meeting, the theatre club also formally thanked Mr Cheape for his tireless work on behalf of the club over the last two years, although as panto manager for this year’s Carnoustie panto, ‘Dick Whittington and His Cat’, he has little time to rest on his laurels.
