THE Royston-based drama group Cads is going for a hat-trick at this year's Cambridge Drama Festival.
The group will be submitting a one-act play in the hope of the success of last year when its production of Tom Stoppard's A Separate Peace took the top award.
The one-act play received, too, the award for the best cameo role and the audience appreciation award.
This year the group is entering The Case of the Prince Formerly Known as Hamlet.

Auditions for the play will be held at Royston's Greneway School drama studio on Thursday Febraury 7 from 7.30pm.
