Hi all,

A fantabalous night for our second Crash Test Drama in Sydney on Monday night at Newtown Theatre.

A very high standard of work on stage from actors, writers and directors and a jammed packed audience of over 100 enjoying every minute. At this rate we’ll have to find a bigger theatre!

And the winners were:

OVERALL PEOPLE’S CHOICE:
A tie between

And

Rupert and the Seven Russian Email Brides, directed by Larry Kelly with Steven McGrath, Albany Dighton, Bianka Demets, Ali Aitken, Georgie Edwards, Heidi Lupprian, Angela Beal, Sally Williams and Amelia Kerr.
