Well the Daily Echo Curtain Call Awards proved to be a bit of a big night last Friday.  All our nominees came out as winners – Andy Thomas and Rob Bartlett for “Best Actor in a Shakespeare Play” (joint winners), Susie Coutts for “Best Actress in a Shakespeare Play”, Penelope Ping for “Best Supporting Actress in a Shakespeare Play” and Nick Downes for “Best Director of a Shakespeare Play”.  All of these awards were for the wonderous A Winter’s Tale.

The cast of A Winter’s Tale have only got a few weeks to get their tuxedos and sparkly frocks dry cleaned though, ready for March’s awards bash with our new friends at Curtain Up South.  Congratulations again to Andy, Penelope, Susie and Nick for their second nominations, and a big welcome to the list for Lara Cooper-Chadwick, who gets herself a “Best Actress” nomination.  The play itself is up for “Best Production”.

The rehearsals for Pericles are now well underway, so get your tickets soon.  Click on this link for more details
