The Curtain Call Awards, 31st January 2015

It was the South Coast’s answer to the Academy Awards.

A sold out crowd of 500 thespians, crew and theatre lovers gathered for Hampshire’s own Oscars, the Daily Echo Curtain Call Awards.

Although, sadley, they didn't win, the following nominations were made for members of the Bursledon Players:

Gemma Mabeley – Director of How The Other Half Loves, Bursledon Players. A debut that managed to coax convincing performances from all the cast.

Gemma Mabley – Pike in Dad’s Army, Bursledon Players. Very endearing, particularly in devotion to Cpt Mainwaring.

Julie Bowring – Mary in How the Other Half Loves, Bursledon Players. Meekness personified.
