The Whatsonstage.com Awards, the “theatregoers’ choice”, are the only major theatre awards in which the audience are the judges across all categories. Each year, the Awards cover the best of London theatre and a bit beyond.
This year The AKA Theatre Event Of The Year award was won by Danny Boyle for the London 2012 Opening Ceremony, with an amazing 56% of the vote from the six finalists nominated in this category.
At the entrance to the Palace Theatre in London many ceremony volunteers were present to help welcome the stars of the stage as they arrive, and many more ceremony volunteers (including performers and props team members) were lucky to have tickets to this special event.
Also nominated was one of our own P.O.D. (Post Olympic Dance) founders, Nathan M Wright, in the The Made Best Choreographer category for Sweet Smell of Success at the Arcola.
Of course when the results were announced Danny Boyle was met with rapturous applause and plenty of “Danny, Danny, Danny” cheers from the gallery!
