    Cally, Jez Roberts is nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Shakespeare play, not plays in general. Just a minor editing note 🙂

    A few other small changes- Vicky and Sev choreographed and were nominated for The Wedding Singer and Jenny Deacon won her Curtain Call for her performance in Showstoppers’ Company.

    But thank you so much for writing this article! Really appreciate SUSU media recognising just how much talent and hard work goes in to our shows. If people haven’t seen one of our student productions before, there’s never been a better time! 😀
