The 2012 Milly's Awards was held on 4 May 2013 at The Playhouse, celebrating Milnerton Players theatre talent. The evening ran very smoothly and, in keeping with the theme SAY IT WITH FLOWERS, flowers were in abundance (albeit mostly artificial) on the foyer stage, on the tables, in hair, buttonholes, around necks and in patterns on various items of clothing.
The entertainment in the first half of the evening was very well received. It began with three numbers from My Fair Lady by Best Actress Award winner, Fiona Tanner, dressed first as Eliza Doolittle the flower seller for „Wouldn‟t it be Loverly‟ and then in evening gown for „I Could Have Danced All Night‟, with Shaun Klaasen, looking very elegant in white tie & tails singing „On the Street Where You Live".
This was followed by the short play THE FLORIST ably performed by Trevor Joubert, who was most convincing, with white beard and hair, as ninety-four year-old George Bernard Shaw, and nominee, Michelle Galloway, also looking somewhat older, as Eliza Doolittle, now Mrs Eynsford -Hill aged sixty–one. Everyone then enjoyed the tasty snacks at interval before moving into the theatre for the awards presentations hosted by our eloquent PRO, Beryl Eichenberger and Chairman, Richard Wade.
Congratulations to all the very worthy winners and to all the nominees and everyone else involved with the plays, i.e. directors, actors, backstage and technical crews and front of house staff. Awards serve as an added incentive to excel in your particular area but it‟s good teamwork that makes a production a success.
