Grantham Dramatic Society is nominated for an award for its production of Blackadder Goes Forth.

Grantham Dramatic Society’s last show, Blackadder Goes Forth, has been nominated for a National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) production award.

The nomination recognises the high standard achieved by the cast and crew in bringing the challenging show to the stage in November last year.

This nomination is the icing on the cake

The show’s director, Helen Pack, said: “This is so thrilling. It’s a cliché but it really is an honour just to be nominated! The whole team worked incredibly hard on this production, including the technical team at the Guildhall, and we’re proud of the high standard we achieved. This nomination is the icing on the cake.”

John Skerritt, who played Blackadder, added: “I’m so proud of the cast and crew for what I believe is a well-deserved nomination. Not only was it GDS at its best, but it was also a great commemoration for the centenary of the First World War.”

GDS will find out at a NODA event in June whether their show has won the award for the East Midlands region.

NODA is an association representing the needs and issues of amateur theatre groups and their members across the UK.
