This just in from Becca (Boyden, ATTP Managing Director):
Advice To The Players has been nominated for six awards for their 2009 theatre season, and has been invited to perform a scene from Shakespeare's 'Henry V' onstage at the Palace Theatre in Manchester on February 5. 'Henry V' was nominated for Best Production in the professional Drama/Comedy category as well as garnering nominations for Caroline Nesbitt as Best Director and Patrick Hornig for Best Sound Designer. Advice To The Players summer show, Shakespeare's 'The Winter's Tale', also received three nominations. Heather Hamilton was nominated for Best Actress for her performance of Hermione, and Bob Bates and Lisa Thompson each received Supporting Actor nominations for their performances as Antigonus and Paulina.
“'Henry V' and 'The Winter's Tale' are not the easiest stories in the world" says Caroline, who directed both productions. "I am humbled by and grateful for our amazing company, and thrilled to have its incredible work recognized."
Heading up the company for the performance will be acting Artistic Director, Mark Woollett, who will be directing the March 2010 production of 'Hamlet'. The twelve-member ensemble, armed with broadswords, will be recreating part of the famous Battle of Agincourt for the popular awards show.
