Viva - Cast members

Viva is looking forward to this coming weekend, Sunday 10th May, when our Viva representatives will be attending the NODA East Gala Awards. Viva has been put forward with two shows from 2014, The Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables for Best Youth Production. Ellie Bovingdon, one of Viva’s longer standing members, has also been selected as Young Performer in our district for her performance as Eponine in Les Miserables.

Picture: See attached. This picture was taken by Ian Bovingdon. This is a mixture of cast members from our summer shows starting from the age of 11 and up! Some of the members in this picture have been involved in Viva for over ten years and some are brand new.  The gentleman at the back, in the black suit, is Steve Hayter from NODA who came along to do some filming with our cast members that will be shown at the NODA awards on Sunday 10th May when introducing all the different amateur groups from the area.
