CONDA 2017 Award winners

CONDA news!

Congratulations to all 2017 CONDA award winners and nominees – and all of us that are part of this amazing community – on a great year of theatre. Thank you to CONDA Inc for a great evening of celebration. Special congratulations to our 2 CONDA winners. We are proud to share these citations accompanying each award.

Excellence by a Female Actor Under 18
WINNER: Alexandra Jensen, The Crucible
(Lindsay Street Players, in association with Young People’s Theatre)

Citation: Deceptively layered and endlessly intense, crafting an entirely enthralling figure at the heart of the wider production. The complexity behind the character’s ever-changing emotional countenance is juxtaposed against the actor’s ease in skilfully transitioning her performance through these varied stages. A powerfully nuanced and incredibly dextrous portrayal.

Congratulations Alexandra!


Excellence in Hair, Make-up and Wigs
WINNER: Claire Thomas, Cats: Abridged
Young People’s Theatre

Citation: Lovingly detailed, every cat in the production was individually distinguished and elaborately defined through skilful use of make-up, creating clear characterisation that carefully complemented the wider range of production values, whilst reinforcing the otherworldly atmosphere with strong, colourful personality.

Congratulations Claire!
