Antoinette Awards

An annual full length play competition run by the Wellington District Theatre Federation and open to any member society. An adjudicator travels to the society's venue to view and adjudicate a performance during the production's normal season. Awards are presented for excellence in theatrical endeavour. Here is how we've done so far...

A proud moment for the Theatre in 2015.
