The Unknown Theatre Company members were, yet again, out in force and to be reckoned with at the Glamorgan Drama League's Glammies Awards Night, held once more at the Barry Memorial Hall, this year on 9 June 2007.

This is the GDL's new logo, launched on the night. It was a great night, but a slightly different format this year. As it was the Glamorgan Drama League's 60th anniversary, it was decided not to have such long speeches, or so much entertainment, and to get all the presentations and performances over in the first half, followed by the buffet, and then the second half of the evening would consist of a live band and dancing.

It worked very well, and is likely to be a format that'll be followed in future years.

There was a sadness this year, that both our President Peggy Mason-Grey and past Chairman Mike Barlow, had both passed away since last year, and the presence, input and contribution made by both was honoured in a speech by GDL Chair, Teri McCarthy. Both had been strong supporters of The Unknown Theatre Company over the years, and we will miss them.

But back to the night. The Unknown Theatre Company once again represented itself very well, with the young people really getting into the spirit of the evening, but without being badly behaved (that distinction went to one of the adult companies on a neighbouring table!).

Want the nominations or winners? Or the photogallery?

This was the second year that Unknown entered plays into the Glammies, and we were delighted to receive several nominations. As we've experienced in previous years with musical productions, in almost everything, we had members from the same show competing against each other for the same award!

A few weeks before The Glammies night, the long list of nominations is released. Here are all the Unknown nominations for 2006-07 (names in bold were shortlisted):
