Sunday 17th February saw the 2019 Young Actor of Mann final at the Studio Theatre Ballakermeen.


Judging by Chris Baglin our GoDA Adjudicator

The Young Actor of Mann competition was a little different this year in that there was only one round with ten competitors.

The competitors each presented two short pieces which were judged by Chris Baglin, a visiting judge from GoDA.

The two pieces chosen by each competitor were very contrasting and the adjudicator remarked that he thought the standard was very high and certainly compared well with the Eisteddfod in Wales which he had adjudicated on several occasions.


Abbie Williams and Roman Trimble

The winner was Abbie Williams with runner up being Roman Trimble.

MADF acknowledge the IOM Arts Council for their financial support of these events.
