NTR & Globe Scoop Prestigious Award
Date: 19 November 2010
Portsmouth’s New Theatre Royal and Shakespeare’s Globe have once again scooped the best Professional Production award at the Portsmouth News Guide Awards.
The classy annual event took place at the Kings Theatre on Monday night and The Globe’s Comedy of Errors, performed to packed houses at the Portsmouth City Museum Gardens last summer, beat off competition from Yes, Prime Minister (Chichester Festival Theatre) and Beauty and the Beast (Kings Theatre) amongst others. This made it a second year running for NTR and Shakespeare’s Globe after receiving the accolade in 2009 for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, jointly with the Kings Theatre for Chicago.
Associate Producer at the Globe, Helen Hillman, was thrilled to win the award again: “We are delighted that we have won this prestigious award for the second year running. In addition to having a great cast and creative team and the support we receive from the wonderful team at the New Theatre Royal, it is the warmth and generosity of the Portsmouth audience which is a major part of the reason we have won this award. We are thrilled to be opening As You Like It in Portsmouth next summer - let’s hope we make it a hat trick!“
