The National Operatic & Dramatic Association Awards
Congleton Players have had a truly amazing series of recent productions that have managed to secure a record number of 16 nominations from The National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA). These productions and our award nominations have been made possible by a dedicated team of not only directors and actors but also all the talented and dedicated people behind the scenes - the props designers, builders and managers, themake-up and hair stylists, set designers and constructors, stage managers and backstage stage crews, the costume professionals, lighting and sound technicians, the front of house people, the marketing and publicity workers and not forgetting the bar staff!
There are many opportunities at Congleton Players to get involved in all of the different areas of theatre so why not get involved? Send us a message, we will be happy to talk to you and show you around. Who knows? - you just might be involved in a future award nominated production and you will be guaranteed a warm welcome.
