It’s been another glittering week of awards for Exmouth youth theatre group Centre Stage, with one of its productions named as the best in the South West.

The National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) South West Awards saw Centre Stage’s Whistle Down the Wind named as Best Youth Production, and also placed third overall in the Best Musical category.

It was also nominated for Best Chorus Singing.

Centre Stage executive chairman Mark Worsley said: “It was a fabulous evening sharing in a true celebration of live theatre with 350 other like-minded people, and a joy to win this award for the second year in a row.

“It was also a pleasure that all three theatrical companies based here in Exmouth - us, Exmouth Musical Theatre Company and Exmouth Players, who were also nominated - were able to share the evening together.”

The NODA Awards followed Centre Stage’s own AGM, at which two new awards were presented.

Matthews Jackson received the Members’ Member award and Josh Brown received the President’s Cup.

The awards follow the group winning first place in the All England Dance Competition song and dance heat in Exeter, as reported last week.

The next Centre Stage production, Sweeney Todd, will be opening on March 31.
