Newbury Nomads to premiere West End show at the Corn Exchange as two actors are nominated for awards

Nomads Musical Theatre are going one step beyond with their next production - Our House.

Following their successful Jekyll & Hyde in October, the Newbury-based society were informed of official recognition by the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) for two of their members.

Jon Lovell has been nominated for the Ken Wirdnam Trophy for Best Male Character in a Musical for his performance as Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde and Jeanette Maskell for the Flame Award for inspirational contribution to the pursuit of excellence in theatre. The winners will be announced at the NODA London Conference on September 18. Society Secretary Amanda Maskell said “I am delighted for Jon and Jeanette for these very well deserved nominations, a fantastic recognition of our local talent.”

This October Nomads presents the Newbury musical premiere Our House, featuring music and lyrics by the band Madness.

This musical first opened on London's West End in 2002 and received the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical in 2003 and continued with national tour success. Set in Camden, it cleverly intertwines the struggle of good and bad in Joe Casey's journey of life and his constant fight to win the girl of his dreams - it's a combination of nutty comedy, love, high energy and hit songs including Baggy Trousers, My Girl, It Must Be Love and Our House,

Our House runs from October 5 to 8 at the Corn Exchange, Newbury. Visit www.cornexchangenew.com for booking details.
