Nominees- Best Show (Non-Musical)



A production involves a lot of elements, not only technical but emotional too. Putting together a group of people requires heart, mind and soul. These are the shows that were, throughout the year, the most memorable.

Inherit The Wind, Aurora Theatre

Read the Review:

A teacher in America is jailed for introducing Darwinism to his young pupils. What follows during the story is not a debate about creationism versus evolution insomuch, but a question about having the right to think.  Involving over 23 actors, Aurora Theatre brings another successful courtroom drama to the stage giving its audience one more time something to think. 


Love Pings, I AM Productions
