October 8, 2010 | Filed Under Reviews 

TMA is delighted to announce the nominations for its annual Theatre Awards ceremony, which celebrates the best of British theatre from around the United Kingdom.

This year’s TMA (Theatrical Management Association) Awards will be presented at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, on Sunday 7 November. The event will be hosted by dancer, director and actor Craig Revel Horwood.

Among the presenters will be award-winning actor Daniel Evans (Artistic Director of Sheffield Theatres), opera star Alfie Boe, Billy Boyd (Pippin in The Lord of the Rings and starring in The Proclaimers musical Sunshine on Leith) and Ivan Putrov, the ex-Royal Ballet principal who will star next year at Sadler’s Wells in a ballet written for him by pop legends Pet Shop Boys.

TMA members include repertory and producing theatres, arts centres, touring companies and venues, major national companies and independent producers, opera and dance companies and associated businesses.

A combination of public panellists and industry experts arrive at three nominations per award (including Best New Play, Best Performance in a Musical, Best Lighting design…)
with all the nominees invited to the Awards ceremony where they and TMA members meet to celebrate the achievements of the past year in Theatre, Opera and Dance.

The 2010 event, which takes place against an unprecedented background of likely cuts in arts funding, is a timely reminder of the huge range and extraordinary quality of theatrical talent that the United Kingdom has to offer – a range reflected in the geographical variety of nominees, with companies from Wales, Scotland, Ireland and England.
