Massive congratulations to young Harleston Player Breeze Redwine for winning the pre-teen category in the national Teenstar singing competition. Performing to a capacity crowd at the national finals at the NEC in Birmingham on July 25th, Breeze received the judges’ highest marks for her performance of ‘Here Alone’, a song by her vocal coach Lisa Redford. Earlier this year, Breeze played Lena Marelli and one of Dandy Dan’s henchmen in Bugsy Malone – including a stunning rendition of ‘There’s no business like show business’. To hear some of Breeze’s amazing singing, visit her youtube page.
Congratulations to Cathy Gill (Director) and everyone involved in our January 2014 production of The Railway Children, which was awarded the National Operatic and Dramatic Association’s Best Play of 2014 for our part of East Anglia. This is a fantastic achievement, and well deserved for what was undoubtedly one of our strongest production of recent years. The Award was accepted on behalf of Harleston Players by Helen Farrar at the Eastern Region NODA Awards, held in St Ives (Cambridgeshire) in April 2015.
