BATS’s “Steel Magnolias” scoop the “Best Drama Award” at the East Region NODA Awards today

It was such an honour and a privilege to be at the helm of this fantastic play last year. a phenomenal cast and crew team. so much talent on the stage.

Today we found ourselves at the NODA awards, 7 months on, having been nominated in Best Drama and Best Panto for “Cinderella”. Such an honour to be nominated let alone to win one of the categories.

It was a lovely day, with all of us looking tippy in our finest.  Food was excellent. It was truly fantastic to be in a room with 450 other exceptionally talented people of all ages, shapes, sizes and backgrounds. And such a great mix of fantastic shoes as well!

i couldnt be more proud of our achievements and this love story i have had with this play for over 20 years.

To quote Kay Young earlier today –  “We winned!!! Yay go us!”

Now, all i can think of is what should be next and “how do we top that”?
