Nowt2Do.Com Announce The Winners Of The Nowt2Do 2003 Awards.
Awarding Bristolís best theatre.

After over three years servicing Bristolianís, Nowt2Do.Com is delighted to announce their first annual theatre awards.

After years reviewing some truly amazing theatre, Nowt2Do.Com thought it was about time they rewarded the best of the best, and itís with this they announce the Nowt2Do.Com Theatre Awards for 2003. Bristol has seen some fantastic theatre this year, and Nowt2Do.Com are delighted to have been part of it.

Every show, which was reviewed and performed during 2003, was eligible for entry and the large reviewing team spent an agonising month coming up with a shortlist for nominations.

The public cast nearly 4000 votes for the first annual awards and the site will be constantly updated as we hear from the winners in person!

The winners are as follows. Read next to the category for acceptance speeches from, Derren Brown, The Bristol Hippodrome, James Mason and Cyberjam. More to come soon.

"Now we know what it feels like to win an Oscar! Needless to say, we hoped we might be in with a chance of winning one of the categories, but we were bowled over to win Best Venue, to have hosted the Best Touring Musical - Miss Saigon and of course, this proves that it's not just us who can't wait for Mary Poppins to open in September, but thousands of our patrons too!"
-- Sarah Bennett-Milne, Press Officer.
