The Stage Awards 2018
Theatre is not short of awards ceremonies. But most focus on the stars, the West End glitz, the people whose names are already up in lights. When we launched The Stage Awards, we wanted a ceremony that recognised the full scope of British theatre.
Since then, our winners have included major national and international organisations such as the National Theatre and Sonia Friedman Productions, but also companies from across the British Isles, touring companies, fringe theatres located in back rooms above pubs, casting directors, stage managers, box office managers, a wardrobe manager… we believe in celebrating the whole of UK theatre.
Nominations for The Stage Awards 2018, in association with Integro Insurance Brokers Ltd, are now open. Any performing arts organisation, regardless of size, can be nominated and self-nomination is encouraged.
Our open nomination process allows anyone to put forward their favourite buildings, schools, companies and individuals, while an industry focus group helps steer the shortlist.
The shortlist is not decided by public vote, nor by the number of nominations we receive. The final cut is selected by a panel of senior editorial figures at The Stage and aims to celebrate the finest theatre achievements of the past year.
All nominees will be invited to The Stage Awards ceremony at Theatre Royal Drury Lane, London, on Friday January 26, 2018, where the winners will be announced.
The Stage Awards are presented in association with Integro Insurance Brokers Ltd.
