SDTN Sponsors Best Male Performance at CATS Awards

The Scottish Drama Training Network are pleased to announce that this year we will be sponsoring the award for Best Male Performance at the Critic’s Awards for Theatre in Scotland (CATS). The awards, now in their 14th year, are organised annually and awarded by the theatre critics of Scotland to celebrate the best Scottish theatre achievements in the theatre year. The judges shortlist nominees into 11 categories; Best Male Performance, Best Female Performance, Best Ensemble, Best Director, Best Design, Best Music and Sound, Best Technical Presentation, Best Show for Children and Young People, Best New Play, Best Production and CATS Whiskers. We are thrilled to be a part of an event that recognises the hard work that actors, directors, designers, musicians, producers, technicians and many more put into theatre in Scotland.
