Drama Festival


And the winner is...!



We are so proud to be one of the award winning plays at the West Chiltington Drama Festival 2019. The best actress award was given to our lovely Ted Gooda for her part of Sue in Anne-Marie Latter's play "Snowed Under".

On one of the hottest days of the year three brave performers from BDS put on their winter coats, hats, scarves and gloves, and performed "Snowed Under" as part of the West Chiltington Drama Festival. 


The play is set in a library with two librarians, and an elderly and annoying customer who are caught in a freak snowstorm. 


 The day before the Festival we performed it to some Year 8 pupils in the library at the Weald School.


Being a Drama Festival, this was a competition and the adjudicator began by praising the set and costumes. We were complimented for our ability to bring out the humour, and Peter Burton was particularly mentioned by the adjudicator for his wonderful acting skills.


This was a play full of laughs from the audience. Each person played their character beautifully and this combined with a slick backstage crew made for a wonderful performance.
