We took part in the finals of the All England Dance festival on 31st July at 19.50 (to be precise!)
The All England Dance Competition, founded in July 1923, is the only one of its kind in the world. It is a Registered Charity, affiliated to the British and International Federation of Festivals, and is a competitive Festival of Theatre Dance for amateurs, children, and students of Theatre Arts.
To advance the education of the public in the Arts and, in particular, the performance, appreciation and the practice of the Art of Dance.
The main purpose is educational. To provide an opportunity for good amateur dancers to receive the judgement of eminent professionals, to gain experiential knowledge, to benefit from seeing others taking part, to develop their confidence by demonstrating their artistic abilities before both critical and appreciative audiences.
To raise the national standard of amateur performance in theatre dance. To provide a forum for Dance Education and the professional Theatre. To increase popular interest and appreciation of Theatre Dance as an enjoyable, sometimes a moving experience and often an entertaining art form. To further public recognition of dance as an important factor in human social development. To be a means by which good dancers may become more widely known and by which some may start their careers as professional artistes.
Our last production was Sweeney Todd-The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Unanimously acclaimed by the critics as one of Stephen Sondheim’s most powerful scores, this black comedy concerns the infamous homicidal career of Sweeney, the unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th century London seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who coveted his young wife and falsely imprisoned him. Cheated of his revenge against the Judge, Sweeney’s thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers, and, with the aid of his razor, he exacts a far more terrible revenge, cheerfully helped by Mrs. Lovett, who is delighted to give new life to her flavourless meat pies! Sophisticated, macabre, visceral and uncompromising, Sweeney Todd mixes intense drama with dark humour, audiences find themselves laughing one moment, and gasping in surprise at the next…. At the show’s core is a challenging score of epic proportion with two tasty tour de force roles in Sweeney and his comic female accomplice Mrs. Lovett.

Further nominations have been made for the Best Youth Production for Whistle Down The Wind and Best Actress- Molly Emerson in the same show. The company will attend the Rosebowl Awards in Weston-Super- Mare in October.
Centre Stage are delighted that they have been nominated for Noda Awards for Best Youth Production for Miss Saigon and Starlight Express and the Stage Electrics award for Technical Achievement for Starlight Express.
**UPDATE** We are delighted to have won Best Youth production for Miss Saigon.
Centre Stage had just finished its successful run of Miss Saigon last April to amazing reviews and had been at work preparing for their summer concerts .
The summer concerts were a complete contrast,(just in case audiences should be bored!) Centre Stage gave us a selection of the most up to date shows possible and some of the cast members own favourites. The musical numbers came from shows that were currently running in London, movie and musicals and the all-time greats.
There was something to please everyone in the programme …from Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! to Will We Rock You, stopping in at the auditions for A Chorus Linem through to the political intrigue of Chess. Performing many familiar songs and some new to the company, the cast enjoyed rehearsals and performances alike
Centre Stage seldom put a theatrical foot wrong and with these fabulous musicals, and this concert was night to remember. Bring on the Next.
