Success at the CATS

We were lucky enough this year to receive 5 nominations for the Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland (CATS).

In a ceremony held yesterday at the Tron Theatre in Glasgow, hosted by Alan Cumming, we were delighted to receive the top award in 2 of these categories:

So for all the brilliant people who helped us out with our piano appeal in March, you'll be pleased they went to very good use!

You can read the full list of 2012 winners on the CATS website. Congratulations to all the winners and nominees.

A great event to celebrate the broadest range of theatre in Scotland, some mentions were made of opinions on recent funding policy changes at Creative Scotland - read Pauline McLean's CATS report on on the BBC website.

Alison, Christine and Anne enjoy a bit of theatrical schmoozing.
So as we approach the end of Dominic first season of work here at the Citz, it's marvelous to look back on Betrayal, King Lear and Krapp's Last Tape/Footfalls - three shows we're very proud of.

If you enjoyed these shows, or heard good things about them; our Autumn Season will be announced and go on sale on Tue 19 June. So pop that date in your diary to join us for another season of exciting theatre.
