AWARDS


PBGS Awards and Nominations

Over the years PBGS has been honoured by a stream of nominations and awards from our regional  NODA Representative, Nova Horley, an appreciation for all the hard work that goes into putting on and performing in a show.

2019: NODA East District 3 N-OVAtion Awards - Paula Fraser for Best Female Actor in a Musical as Desiree in 'A Little Night Music', and Graham Thompson for Best MD for 'The Grand Duke'.

PBGS received a raft of N-OVAtion Award Nominations this year, three of which were for Best Actor (Female) in a Musical! Congratulations to winner Paula Fraser who gave an outstanding performance as Desiree in A Little Night Music and to Graham Thomson for winning Best Musical Director for our lively production of The Grand Duke!

We had two more nominees in the same Best Actress category, Sue Wookey for Baroness Von Krakenfelt in The Grand Duke and Rachel Thomas for Madam Armfeldt in A Little Night Music, both of whom received Runner Up certificates. This is an amazing tribute to the outstanding quality of performance that PBGS aspires to!

Peter Sayers and Sue Wookey were also nominated in the same category for their performances as Senex and Domina in our Autumn 2017 production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.

It's wonderful to see performances from both of these shows nominated after all the hard work put in by everybody.

2012: NODA East District 3 N-Ovation Award Nominations  - Best Musical and Best Comedy Performance 


Our wonderfully funny Spring 2012 Production of Patience received two nominations. It was nominated for the N-Ovation Best Musical Award and although we didn't win, being nominated for Best Musical is a considerable achievement against some very stiff competition. And Paula Fraser received an individual nomination for Best Comedy Performance for her 'Brummie' Patience.
