The 67th Annual Newry Drama Festival finished at the weekend after nine nights of drama on stage from Amateur Dramatic groups the length and breadth of Ireland.

Adjudicator Brian Marjoribanks had the unenviable task of selecting the award winners, but after deliberating the 2019 Premier Award was awarded to Prosperous Dramatic Society for their  production of Enemy of the People by Henrik Ibsen (Version by Rebecca Lenkiewicz.)

In 2019 it really was a case of keeping the best to last with Prosperous taking to the stage on the final night of the festival.

Prosperous Dramatic Society took the Premier Award at Newry Drama Festival 2019 as well as Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor and Best Lighting. Included front from left: Brian Marjoribanks, Adjudicator; Charlie Smyth, President, Newry Drama Festival; T.J Duggan, Director, Prosperous Dramatic Society and Maire Donaghey, Chairperson, Newry Drama Festival. Back from left: Prosperous Dramatic Society members Roisin Gorman, Malcolm Taylor, Neil McFadden, Robert Massey, Gerard O'Shea, Ciaran Healy, Connie Bordick, Marie Houlihan.
