Brian as Prince Charming in 'Trial by Jury'

2012: NODA East District 3 Nominations - Best Musical and Best Comedy Performance
Our wonderfully funny Spring 2012 Production of Patience received two nominations. It was nominated for a NODA Eastern Region 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.
