Congratulations to the cast, crew, and creative team of Footloose for winning Best Musical, and to the team from You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown for taking out the Junior Encouragement Award. We are so proud of each and every one of the amazing people involved in making these wonderful productions happen”.

Broadford local Barry Withers received the Ted Malloy Award for Outstanding Contribution to Amateur Theatre. This award recognises Mr Wither’s involvement in community theatre over many decades and, in particular, his contribution to the Broadford Amateur Theatrical Society (BATS) and Seymour Performers Workshop. Over the years Mr Withers has appeared in more than 80 productions and worked tirelessly behind the scenes as an active member of both organisations. He continues to support both groups and provide fantastic mentorship to their younger members.
Congratulations everyone and thank you to the Georgy Awards Association and all sponsors for their fantastic support of community theatre.
