The recipient of the Mary Hamilton Award this year is one of our very youngest members. Since joining DMTC, he has appeared in every production that has required children. In “Carousel”, when a close family relative realised that her days of unicycling were probably now behind her, he took up the challenge. He found it hard going, but he persevered and went along to the Durham Juggling Club to get expert tuition and within two sessions he had mastered the tricky feat of unicycling.
Mary would have been thrilled with his attitude that this was not going to defeat him. He is just the sort of youngster she would have wanted to encourage. We are therefore delighted that the 2017 Mary Hamilton Award goes to Kameron Milton.
