2015 John Westbrook Award
As Hilary Westbrook, John's widow, could not attend any of the Acorn Antiques performances due to prior commitments, she delegated the nomination of the John Westbrook Award for 2015 to Val Sykes. Val chose to award the trophy to Mandy Clowes, saying: 'When there are not so many people on stage, each member of the supporting cast is clearly visible and it is extra important to give it everything. Mandy was always fully involved om each scene she was in, acting and reacting to others very well. I loved the three backing "beehive" singers number and she was clearly really enjoying it,'
Raise FREE money for CUP
Doing your shopping on-line? Why not raise money for Curtain Up! Productions at the same time - at absolutely no cost to yourself? You get access to all of your favourite on-line and high street retailers and pay the same prices that you would normally - all that happens is that CUP receives a percentage of the total of your shopping, which can be as much as 3% of the amount you spend. Since we started this scheme, the society has received a total of £580.59 at a cost of absolutely nothing! Click here to find out more and sign up to start generating money.

Welcome to our website!
Curtain Up! Productions is the new name for Denmead Operatic Society. Along with our new name, we decided that our website should also have a fresh new look, but although it appears very different from our old site, you'll still find all the information you need about the society and what we are up to. In addition, we will be incorporating some new facilities like a ticket booking system which will allow you to pay online using debit and credit cards and, where shows have allocated seats, even choose the seats you want to sit in.
We have news about the society, details of our forthcoming shows and social events, lots of pictures and information about past productions, plus all you need to know about getting in touch with us or joining the group. Click here to find out where things are on the site.
