A great night was had by all at the NODA awards ceremony last Saturday – huge congratulations to Maddy Cawthorn on her Rising Star award for her performance as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz (of course we were lucky enough to have two outstanding Dorothys as Georgina Faed, our other Dorothy, had already previously won an award) and to the director, Lisa Summers, back stage crew, helpers and cast for their contribution to Best Production Award. A big well done to Bill Shardlow too for his runner up award as ‘The Cowardly Lion’. If only there had been an animal award for our two amazing Totos! Well done to all the other nominees and winners too one of whom was another local favourite, Jonathan Scott of Spittal Variety Group who won the individual performance award for his portrayal of Wishee Washee in Aladdin. Congratulations everyone!
