The Cinderella Trophy

 

The Cinderella Trophy Competition

This is a competition, taking place over the winter months (December-March)  in which groups affiliated to the SFD can enter their pantomimes to be judged by a member of the Adjudicating Panel who afterwards sends them a full written report.  All entries are also seen by the CTC Moderator who writes a review which is published in Spotlight Online.

The Competition is extremely popular and there are nearly 30 entries each year. A list of previous winners can be seen here.

At the end of the season, usually in April, the panel meets to agree which productions merit nominations in any of up to 26 categories for the Groups and a similar number for Individual Performances, and to decide on a winner in each.  

The nominations, and the winners, in each category are announced at a Presentation Evening which is held every year in May.  There is a buffet supper and entertainment is provided in the form of a cabaret, made up of short pieces selected from some of the year's pantos. Those invited to perform in the cabaret get free tickets. 

Paid up SFD Members, and Group Contacts, can get more information about the Rules of the Competition, and how it is marked, by looking at the CinderellaTrophy Competition page under Documents & Resources in the left-hand menu.

The CTC Coordinator is Pam Price.  You can find her contact details on the Committee Contact List if you are an individual SFD member or a Club Contact.  Otherwise you can email her from here .

The entry form for next season is now available for you to fill in online. Click here to view it, or to request a printable version which we will email to you.
