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.

Today saw the official launch of Andover Musical & Operatic Society, with an open day at The Lights theatre in Andover.
The day began with a warm-up workshop led by our resident Director/Choreographer Claire Nias, who helped to break the ice with some fun challenges which resulted in all the attendees getting to know each other with a few giggles along the way.
Singing Coach Lisa Faye then took over to do some vocal exercises before teaching the song "One Short Day" from the hit musical Wicked. Lisa worked with the whole group to teach the harmonies, and encouraged everyone to think about projection and pronunciation.
The Mayor of Test Valley, Counsellor Zilliah Brooks joined us at our mini-concert to officially launch our new name and to celebrate our newly awarded charity status.
There are just a few spaces left for our musical theatre workshop on Saturday 17th September.
The workshop included vocal coaching from professional singer Lisa Faye, and choreography from our in-house Director Claire Nias. It takes place at 10am-4pm at The Lights, Andover.
To registers please complete the online form CLICK HERE
At the end of the day there will be a short concert to showcase what has been learnt in the workshop alongside performances from our current members so please invite your friends and family!
Entry is FREE but will be on first come first served basis so we advise early arrival.
