Andover Actor Wins Award!
Eddie Nias, a member of Andover Musical Theatre Company, has been presented with a Curtain Call Award by the Southern Daily Echo for ‘Best Actor in an Opera’ in recognition of his performance as The Major General in their 2013 production of The Pirates of Penzance.
Eddie was praised by the judges who described him as a director’s dream, superb as the manic Major-General. Although nominated under the Opera category, the version of The Pirates of Penzance performed was very much a modern musical and Director Carol Robinson was praised by for delivering a funny, fast-paced, visually attractive production, described as an ‘altogether faultless show’.
The Curtain Call Awards, known as the Oscars of the amateur theatre world, cover the whole of the Hampshire area, and the judges review hundreds of productions throughout the year, nominating the cream of the crop for the annual awards.
This is not the first time that Andover Musical Theatre Company have been recognized for their talent; they have previously been nominated for over ten different awards in the Best Actor in a Musical, Best Actress in a Musical, Best Scenery and Props and the most coveted award - Best Musical for their 2012 production of Jekyll & Hyde.
The company’s next production is the deliciously salacious musical The Witches of Eastwick on stage at The Lights 29th April – 3rd May.
Tickets are on sale now from the box office 01264 368368.
