Members of the YPT team attended the City of Newcastle Drama Association – CONDAs – Award Nominations evening on the 15 November. We loved attending the nominations launch and then heading back to the theatre in time to present some well deserving students with their certificates during class. While we certainly don’t do productions to receive accolades, it is very nice to see the hard work of our young people acknowledged.
YPT received the following nominations:
- Leilani Rose, Excellence in Hair and Make-up for The Addams Family.
- Leilani Rose, Excellence in Costume Design for The Addams Family.
- Amelia Accardi, Excellence by a performer 18 and under (Musical) for Wednesday in The Addams Family.
- Brynn Jackson, Excellence by a performer 18 and under (Musical) for Wednesday in The Addams Family.
- Excellence by an Ensemble 18 and under, The Addams Family.
- Best Youth Production, The Addams Family.
- Chelsea Willis and Maddie Watts, Excellence by a Choreographer for Children of Eden JR.
- Excellence by an Ensemble 18 and under, Children of Eden JR.
We are so thrilled to see two of our productions, The Addams Family and Children of Eden JR. recognised in the nominations. We are incredibly proud of both of these productions and every one involved. As we are with all of our productions, nominations or not. Congratulations!
Congratulations to all the nominees and a special shout-out to the many YPT students and tutors who have been recognised for their hard work in performing, directing and tech for other productions!
We look forward to celebrating another fabulous (albeit difficult with covid) year of Theatre in Newcastle.
