OAT Alumni Take Home Black British Theatre Awards 22

Published: 22 November 2021

Five members of our 2021 season alumni took home awards from last night's third annual Black British Theatre Awards.

Ingrid Mackinnon, who worked as Movement Director on Romeo and Juliet, received the award for Best Choreographer. Isabel Adomakoh Young (Juliet) was recognised as Best Female Actor in a Play, joined by Andrew French (Lord Capulet) and Aretha Ayeh (Benvolia) who received Best Supporting Male and Female Actors in a Play respectively.

Natasha May-Thomas made her professional debut this year at Regent's Park, and so we are delighted that she was recognised as both Best Recent Graduate and Best Supporting Female Actor in a Musical for her work as Louise Bigelow in Carousel.
