Our Youth Section showcase night, ‘Stage and Screen Through the Decades’, which took place on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th November 2019, saw us present awards to some of our Youth Section members.

Awards were presented for two and five years service, and the Jack Elliott Trophy – which is presented to a Youth Section member, or members, on an annual basis.

This year’s Jack Elliott trophy is, as usual, well deserved and was very difficult to decide on a winner, but this year, we have two – Grace Randall and Maddy Sutton.

Our Youth Section leaders said of Grace and Maddy:

Always so kind in nature, they are always friendly, and courteous to us and their peers. They are committed to attend rehearsals, have always listened carefully to any direction given in acting and singing and perform with ease.

They have prepared well for auditions and taken lead roles with passion always rising to any challenge of song, acting or dance by learning their characters well.  Together as a group with their friends in this show they have worked well to choreograph their fabulous dance and song routines.

They have performed in the adult members’ shows and pantomimes. They have been helpful assisting front of house and may have, at some point, shown you to your seats.  

These two great friends are a credit to Bolsover Drama Group with fabulous potential for their future and truly are ambassadors for the group and shape the current youth section today.

Always so kind in nature, they are always friendly, and courteous to us and their peers. They are committed to attend rehearsals, have always listened carefully to any direction given in acting and singing and perform with ease.
