Saturday 11th February 2017 saw us gain 6 awards at the Northern Area Performance Theatre Awards (NAPTAs) in Auckland.
The Vicar of Dibley was very successful, winning five of the six awards for which it was nominated. Laura Thomson won Best Supporting Actress in a Play, for her portrayal of Alice Tinker, and Pete Fleming (as Jim Trott) won Best Supporting Actor in a Play. Tracey Lawson went one better, winning the award for the Best Actress in a Play as the Rev. Geraldine Granger.
For Pamela Black it was third time lucky, finally winning the award for Best Direction of a Play having been nominated unsuccessfully on two previous occasions. Unfortunately she was unable to there to collect the award, and Alison Thomson (Production Manager) holds it for her. The whole cast were then rewarded with the NAPTA award for Best Play (held above by Eilean Rawson).
Rod King won the award for Best Set Design, for the phenomenal set he created for The Sound of Music.
