Nominees for 2017/18 Alan Leadbeater Award

Monday, 26 March 2018

We are delighted to announce the nominees for the 2017/18 ‘Alan’ Award – our very own version of an Oscar!

There are four nominees this year. They are (in alphabetical order):

  • LIZ BIRD – for her role as Sister Mary Lazarus in Sister Act.
  • PAUL MITCHELL – for his role as Lt Eddie Souther in Sister Act.
  • LUCY TRAVES – for her role as Sister Mary Robert in Sister Act.
  • LAURA WOODALL – for her role as Deloris Van Cartier in Sister Act.

Many congratulations to each of our nominees. The committee had all the principal cast members to choose from, so it was no easy task!

The process to find the list of nominees is the same each year: a secret vote by all members of the committee. The name of every principal in the show goes onto the ballot paper, and each committee member privately marks their favourite four. All the committee votes are then tallied in secret (by the President and Chairman), and the top four automatically become the nominees. Not even the committee know how many votes each person received.

Who will win? Only YOU (our members) will decide. Every member attending our AGM on Tuesday 8 May 2018 will cast their vote in a private ballot before the proceedings begin. The winner will be announced, and the award presented, on the night itself.

Just a reminder that the Alan Leadbeater Memorial Award is for YOUR favourite performance of the year, from the list of nominees above. Not necessarily for the the biggest role, or most prominent performer of the year – a debut, or a cameo performance could equally be the performance you enjoyed the most.

See you all at the AGM… put Tuesday 8 May in your diaries now!
