Each June NODA London holds an awards ceremony – the ‘OSCARS’ of the amateur world! One of the awards is the YOUNGSTARS trophy, awarded for the Best Youth Production. We are delighted to announce that we have won this award for a second time – in this instance for Beauty and The Beast Jr. This recognises not only the huge amount of work our talented cast put into each summer school production but also the massive contribution made by our adult support teams. Well done to everyone involved.

A number of our students, wearing their Beauty and the Beast Jr t-shirts, attended the award ceremony to accept the certificate and trophy.

Our reunion – another big success

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

The reunion on 10th December, organised by 8 students plus Annie, went with a real swing. More than 30 students and 20 staff members had great fun and soon dispatched the buffet supper. Music, dancing, singing quizzes and games paved the way for a spontaneous re-enactment of Tradition and the Bottle Dance from Fiddler. Sounds like quite a party.

Praise from NODA for Fiddler…

Monday, November 8th, 2010

‘I can only admire the young performers, aged between eight and eighteen, for having put on a performance of a difficult show with only a week of rehearsals.  Their dedication, concentration and enthusiasm is to be highly praised and, providing they continue to take part in such an excellent hobby, it bodes well for the future of amateur theatre, for they are the future.’

Harvey Kesselman, NODA Rep.
