The Cromer and Sheringham Operatic and Dramatic Society have won a national award for their production of The Calendar Girls, which they put on at the Sheringham Little Theatre in October.

The National Operatic and Dramatic Association awarded the society first place for the Best Play for 2012 in East District. The show was part of their fundraising for the charity Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.

Andrew Payne, chairman of the society accepted the award on the group’s behalf.  The Calendar Girls is the story of a group of friends who decide to bare all on a calendar, in order to raise funds for a settee for the waiting room of the hospital where the character Annie’s husband had received his treatments for the blood cancer. Although John did not live to see the calendar published, he loved the idea and gave it his full backing.

The Cromer and Sheringham Operatic and Dramatic Society are currently preparing to put the musical, The Sound of Music on at the Pavilion Theatre from May 25 to June 1. This year they are raising money for Parkinson’s UK.
