Miranda Lane and Josh Lockwood, from Shinfield Players Theatre Youth Group, won best actress and best supporting actor accolades at the Class In Action Festival in Prague last month, after impressing judges with their performances.

Sarah Lockwood, 17, said: “We presented two pieces, a girls’ piece and a boys’ piece, which were linked around the theme of journeys.

“The performances were a lot of fun to put on, particularly as the atmosphere at the theatre was so positive.

“The standard of pieces from the other eight

groups was excellent and varied.

“It was a great challenge and a great experience from which we all learnt a lot.”
