It was the NorthWest Region awards for the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) on Saturday in Southport.

Chorley Little Theatre were delighted to win six awards and were nominated for many more.

CADOS chairman Ian Robinson said: “Almost all our productions in 2013 were nominated, and it’s great for the casts and crews to be recognised for their hard work, which has gone down well with audiences and critics alike.

“When we’re busy producing a new show roughly every four or six weeks we can easily forget what we’ve achieved, so events like this are welcome reminders.”

Ian added: “It’s particularly great to see Hound of the Baskervilles win Best Play, as it was quite quirky, but all the nominations show the range and depth of what we put on.

“It’s also great to see so many nominations for Chorley Youth Theatre as their productions are by people aged 11 to 19, with only a little help from adults, and shows what a great bunch of new talent we have.”

The awards cover everything staged by CADOS and Chorley Youth Theatre at Chorley Little Theatre in 2013, although sadly Charlotte’s Web and Kes didn’t qualify because of a re-organisation at NODA.

Hound of the Baskervilles director Mark Jones is next reunited with his award-winning leading man Dave Reid in Breaking The Code, the forthcoming CADOS play which opens on February 24.
