Hamburg Players win best production! Ellen Bergman wins Blackie award for best actress!

The Hamburg Players travelled to Luxembourg over the Whit weekend to the Festival of English Anglophone Theatrical Societies (FEATS) annual one act festival. Director Valerie Doyle was proud to be able to present the European premiere of Pulitzer Prize Winner, David Auburn's play "Amateurs", a tense drama featuring an older political operative (Jonathan Greenman) confronting his past in the form of a young woman (Ellen Bergman), the daughter of a former political rival. Three months of intensive rehearsals paid off when on the very last slot of the festival our cast (including Mathilde Berry as the secretary) delivered an electric performance, which the adjudicator praised as a theatrical highpoint of the festival, awarding us The Founders Cup for best production, the Blackie Award for best actress and a nomination for best actor. Thanks to our stage manager Henrik Zawischa, and crew: lights - Tom White, sound - Meg Mc Farlane and Amy Lee - the set looked fantastic as was the opening sound track, both garnering praise from the adjudicator. Special thanks to Lexi von Hoffmann for wonderful props and to Martin Mills for music and sound ideas.

And to our nearly 30-strong team of supporters who came to cheer us on - many of whom were at the FEATS for the very first time. We made a lively impression on the FEATS community with many of our young participants (and a few oldies too) dominating the dance floor until the wee small hours at the FEATS party.  A final evening was spent after the awards were over celebrating on the steps of Luxembourg's Town Hall with some of the Munich group. 

We are so looking forward to hosting FEATS next year in 2015 in the Altonaer Theater Hamburg

At this year's Festival of European Anglophone Theatrical Societies the Hamburg Players not only won the Founders Trophy for the best play of the festival, also Ellen Bergman was given the Blackie Award as the best actress. Jonathan Greenman was also nominated for the Blackie and got much praise from the adjudicator. What a great encouragement for the next year when we will be hosting FEATS 2015 in Hamburg. Now the tired but happy group is now on its way home. More information later.
