Beaufort sponsors a winner!

Beaufort Research regularly sponsors The Unknown Theatre Company – a voluntary run, youth musical theatre group based in Cardiff.

There were 9 plays making up the festival, 2 of which were entered by The Unknown Theatre Co. The standards were exceptionally high this year and no-one envied the adjudicator`s job of choosing winners for specific awards on the final night. Based on marks for Acting, Production, Stage Presentation & Overall Theatrical Attainment, the following awards were presented:

The Adjudicator`s award – UTC - Craig and David in `Just`
Best Comedy Performance – Cardiff Players.  James Wison in `Obituary`
Best Individual performance – UTC – Chris Powell in `The Cut`
Mari Major Youth Award – UTC – Grant Cawley in `The Cut`
Best Director – UTC – Lon David for `The Cut`
Festival Winner – UTC - `The Cut`

The group now have to wait and see if they were awarded enough marks to make it into the top 6 plays from all the individual Welsh One Act Festivals. Those 6 will then go on to make up the Welsh Final held in June in Ystradgynlais.  The winner of that festival will go on to represent Wales in the British Final.
