It's been around for 90 years but now Wimbledon's oldest amateur drama society is finally getting the acclaim it deserves.

The Carlton Theatre Group recently celebrated its 90th birthday by winning three awards handed out by the National Operatic and Dramatic Association.

This past summer's production of 'the importance of being earnest' by Oscar Wilde was judged best drama in London district 3, with the best male and female Actors in a drama going to Leon Hernandez as John Worthing and Carrie Cable as Lady Bracknell in the same show.

Leon was delighted by the role.

"I adored playing Jack," he said.

"Getting the NODA nomination was really special, the icing on the cake of a year of hard work."

Val Foskett who directed the play, echoed those same thoughts.

"I’m really delighted that the hard work of an excellent cast should have been recognised like this."

The group are currently rehearsing for their next show, Shakespeare’s 'the winter’s tale' which will be shown at the New Wimbledon Studio Theatre next month.
