WhatsOnStage awards success for Sheffield Theatres

17th February 2015

Sheffield Theatres is celebrating today after its production of Lionel Bart's Oliver! was named Best Regional Production in the prestigious WhatsOnStage awards on Sunday.

The success at the award ceremony marks the second time in as many years that the Theatre has won the award for Best Regional Production, following on from the success of My Fair Lady in 2014. The hugely successful production of Oliver!, directed by Daniel Evans, starred Tom Edden as Fagin and 60 local children. It played at the Crucible Theatre during their Christmas season in 2013. Artistic Director of Sheffield Theatres, Daniel Evans, said: 'We are delighted that our production of Oliver! has been voted Best Regional Production in these awards. I'm incredibly proud of the team that created the show. But the award is really dedicated to our 60 hugely talented, young, local actors and their parents and guardians who made Christmas in 2013 a season to remember and cherish.' The WhatsOnStage Awards are the only major awards where the winners are chosen by a public vote. This year's ceremony took place on Sunday 15 February at the West End's Prince of Wales Theatre."
