The Fifteen Minute Hamlet
by Tom Stoppard
A rather different romp through Hamlet using the original language of Shakespeare. The Next Generation have worked hard to produce a piece worthy of the Wilmslow Festival, although we were not successful, it is to their credit that they produced a flawless play in the competition. Hopefully they won't disappoint tonight!

The Match Girl
adapted by Nathaniel Hall
An emotional rollercoaster as we follow the Match Girl and her doomed life. This is a poignant adaptation of a classic story, brought up to date with characters we are all familiar with and wonderfully acted by the whole ensemble. A real credit to the theatre, this piece won best youth production in the Wilmslow Guild Festival.
