WhatsOnStage Awards Winner 25

WhatsOnStageAwards

We are pleased to announce that we have won Best Play Revival for our 2013 sell-out production of To Kill a Mockingbird and Best Musical Revival for The Sound of Music in the WhatsOnStage Awards.

This year’s star-studded awards concert took place at the Prince of Wales Theatre last night where Artistic Director Timothy Sheader and Izzy Lee, representing the company, collected the award for Best Play Revival for To Kill a Mockingbird. The production will return to the venue this summer to conclude our 2014 season, ahead of a UK tour.

Director Rachel Kavanaugh also attended the awards to join Timothy Sheader to collect the award for The Sound of Music, and both Charlotte Wakefield and Michael Xavier (who starred in the production) performed as part of the concert. The Sound of Music became the highest grossing production in the history of the theatre and this is the first time that we have won this award.

Thank you to everyone who voted for us.
