SUSU has over 30 Performing Arts societies covering everything from magic to comedy, street dance to ballet and circus to theatre.

Throughout the year they attend various regional and national competitions, as well as high profile events like the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and continue to receive fantastic reviews for their productions and performances.

All this hard work paid off last week when when Performing Arts received the news that they’ve been nominated for a phenomenal 15 awards at The Daily Echo’s Curtain Call Awards!

The awards recognise the very best of amateur theatre in the South every year, and we’re excited that Performing Arts have managed to scoop nominations for nearly half of all the awards on offer. The Curtain Call Awards ceremony is being held on 25th January 2013 in the DeVere Grand Harbour Hotel, so we’ll be watching closely for all of the winners.

Congratulations to all of the nominees and to all of the Performing Arts team involved in putting on such great performances. Here’s a full list of the SUSu Performing Arts nominations:
