Special recognition for NK Theatre Arts at awards do
ROMILEY-BASED theatre company NK Theatre Arts has once again seen success at this year’s Manchester Musical Awards.
Having been shortlisted for nine awards the group, a registered charity based at The Forum Theatre, came away with two of the top gongs.
The company won Best Ensemble Piece for the finale in Footloose, and for the third year running came away with the Special Adjudicator’s Award.
The award is given by an adjudicator who attends 17 different performances throughout the year and is normally awarded to an individual, but in this case was given to NK Theatre Arts as a whole for the work done by the charity in the community and in the development of children and young people through the arts.
The award was accepted by Kerry Day, artistic director at NK.
She said: “It was absolutely thrilling to win this award as a whole organisation.
“NK is very much about the people and the work we do every day at the Forum, which culminates in shows and events we put on throughout the year.
“To be recognised for the work we do with our children, young people and adults, and of course the wider community through our outreach programme was very unexpected as these events tend to focus solely on the productions seen throughout the year, so everyone was extremely proud and delighted to receive such special commendation from the Manchester Musical Awards for our entire organisation.”
