The Littleport Players have been nominated for three nationally-recognised awards.
The theatre group, who performed ‘Cinderella’ at the Littleport Ex-Servicemen’s Club, are up for three NODA (National Operatic Dramatic Association) awards.
Their production of ‘Avenue Q’ is in the running for best musical of 2016 and best technical award – for handmade puppets. ‘Cinderella’ is also listed in the best pantomime category.
“We are all so excited and delighted to have been nominated not only for one award, but for three,” said Littleport Players actor Becky Green.
“And I believe Sheila Goodall, our own hard-working costume designer and gifted puppet maker who has been with us for a good 10 years now, has every chance of picking up the best technical award of 2016.”

“She is a little gem and really deserves to receive such a coveted award.”
