The Antoinettes 2021

The Antoinettes are the WDTF Theatre Awards.  They are awarded by the Full-Length Festival Adjudicator who this year is Rob Ormsby.  Only plays entered into the Festival are eligible for consideration.

The Awards are presented at the Antoinettes Evening on Sunday 5th December 2021.  The venue is the Polish Club in Newtown.

The Antoinette Awards

The adjudicator can make the following awards.  There is no requirement to make an award if either there are no entries in that category OR the adjudicator does not believe any entry in the relevant category meets the required threshold.

Excellence in Acting

These are awarded for acting in any role, irrespective of whether it is 'leading' or 'supporting'.  The number of such awards will depend upon the overall number of entries; typically the number is four but this can be increased if necessary.

Best Costumed Production

Self-explanatory!  

Best Set Design

Best Technical Production

This can encompass some or all of the many technical aspects:  sound, lighting, special-effects.
