Upon the release of the nominations list for this year’s Curtain Call Awards, it’s good news for multiple University of Southampton students. The Daily Echo‘s awards award the best of the best of amateur theatre across the South Coast.
Members from both Southampton University’s Theatre Group and Musical Theatre Society, Showstoppers, have seen their hard work and talents recognised by the team at the Daily Echo who: “have been scouring the area seeking out the very best actors, producers and crews in genres from comedy to drama, youth to pantomimes and musicals to Shakespeare.”
For their performances for Theatre Group, Cat Lewis has received a nomination for her role as Daria Chase in The Game’s Afoot, whilst newcomer Darius Timmerman has received a nomination for his role as Moses in Animal Farm. Meanwhile, over at Showstoppers, the musical Freelancers, written by members of the society, saw a nomination for its choreographer Ruthie Pinion. Second year student Charlie Randall has received nominations for roles he’s played in both societies, with both his depiction of Paul Muddle in Freelancers and Stephano in The Tempest being recognised.
These nominations show the high talent within our university, and the folks here at The Edge wish the nominees the best of luck for the result! The winners will be announced at a dinner at Grand Harbour Hotel on the 27th January 2017.
