Choosing a suitable recipient for the Mary Hamilton Award is never an easy task, as many of our younger members distinguish themselves throughout the year with their outstanding contributions to the work of the company.
In 2012, our major production of “42nd Street” was met with huge critical acclaim, particularly as an example of a true company performance. This involved almost a year of preparation with the entire company learning how to tap dance.
Such a programme entailed a huge commitment from all concerned, but especially from the 6 girls who had the unenviable task of learning 16 dance routines. Their unwavering hard work, tenacity and stamina paid off with superb performances that contributed hugely to the overall success of the show.
We are indeed lucky to have such dedicated and talented young performers in our company and the committee felt it was absolutely right that this year they jointly should be given the Mary Hamilton Award.
Therefore, the 2012 Mary Hamilton Award goes to…
The award was presented at the July Annual General Meeting by the President of DMTC, Valenda Taylor.
