The 37th Green Room Awards for Theatre were announced last night via an online presentation, thanks to some clever reshuffling by the Green Room Awards Association. Although we couldn’t be there in person to whoop and cheer the winners and commiserate with the nominees who missed out, we were there in spirit, cheering from our lounge rooms. The awards are a demonstration of just how much talent there is in the city, and we were mightily cheered by a grand total of 25 nominations for productions programmed in our theatre last year.
A very special congratulations to the following winners:
Lightning Jar Theatre, Best Production, Independent Theatre, Mr Burns: a post-electric play
Carly Sheppard, Best Performer, Independent Theatre, Love
Scott Griffiths, Musical Direction, Cabaret, The Ghetto Cabaret
Dann Barber/Rachel Burke, Design, Cabaret, The Ghetto Cabaret
Emma Mary Hall, Writing, Independent Theatre, World Problems
