Rising Stars Awards Winners 2023 – Most Improved Members
Rising Stars held their annual awards ceremony after the last performance of The Addams Family on Saturday 25th March 2023.
The first two awards were for the Most Improved Members.
It was very obvious to us right from the start that being in Rising Stars was more than just singing, dancing and putting on a show. We noticed that members grew in confidence, made new friends and developed all sorts of essential life skills, such as teamwork, interpersonal skills and management.
The Most Improved Member award is not given to the most talented cast member – although many of our previous winners have developed into great performers and taken principal roles. The award is given to the member who has shown the most improvement in some aspect of their performance skills or personality in the previous 12 months as a direct result of their involvement with Rising Stars.
There are two awards in this category – Under 13 Years & 13 years and over.
Most Improved Member – Under 13 years
AND THE WINNER IS….. Tess
Tess has performed with Rising Stars for several years, but despite having a lovely voice, she never put herself forward to her sing on her own. She had a solo line in School’s Out, but then went on to audition for (and get) the principal role of Pugsley Addams which she absolutely smashed.
Over the last 12 months, we have had great pleasure in watching her improve in confidence and performance.
Most Improved Member – 13 years and over
AND THE WINNER IS….. Olivia
Olivia first joined us for School’s Out but was initially quite shy and very nervous on stage. We have watched her grow in confidence and ability throughout the last 12 months and we particularly like the way she is in character every second that she is on stage.
Congratulations to you both. We look forward to seeing you perform in many more shows with us.
