Chapter-supported productions lead the way at Wales Theatre Awards 2016

Posted on: 18 Jan 2016

This year’s Wales Theatre Awards take place on Saturday 30th of January at Sherman Cymru. Celebrating excellence within theatre, opera and dance, the awards are vital in ensuring recognition for those involved in the performing arts in Wales, and also in the development of critical writing, which is crucial to the continued success and development of the theatre in Wales. Those shortlisted for an award are selected by a wide range of arts critics working across the media, from seasoned critics to young critics setting out in their careers.
