Richmond Amateur Dramatic Society nominated for four awards

Richmond Amateur Dramatic Society have been nominated for an impressive four NODA North awards for the 2021/2022 season.

NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association) is the national body that represents amateur theatre across the UK.

Representatives attend performances across the region throughout the last year and nominate those shows that they believe have shown true excellence.

“It’s absolutely wonderful to have been nominated for this many awards,” said RADS vice-chair Beki Stevenson.

“After such a tough few years where our society hasn’t been able to meet in person, let alone put on shows, it’s fantastic to have the casts recognised for their performances.

“There are months of rehearsals that go into putting on one of our productions before they even reach the stage, so these nominations are very much well deserved.”

RADS have been nominated for their November 2021 production of Arcadia by Tom Stoppard, with Katrianna Torbet nominated for an acting award for her performance of Thomasina; and their March 2022 production of Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime by Constance Cox, with Lee Morris nominated for an acting award for his performance as Herr Winkelkopf.

The award ceremony will be held in Newcastle on the September 17.

RADS next show Stepping Out performs at the Georgian Theatre Royal, on the July 28 to 30 and August 3 to 6.

Tickets are available from the Georgian Theatre Box Office on 0174 825252 or online at

Prospective members are always welcome to come along to RADS club-nights, held on the 2nd Monday of the month at the RADS clubrooms 6-8 Castle Hill.
