What’s On Stage Awards

With the nominations for the What’s On Stage Awards being opened this week, and musical direction has again not been recognised. It seems appropriate that the first news article on this website is one which promotes a petition aiming to get What’s On Stage to recognise the music department.

Led by Musical Director/Supervisor/Orchestrator Mike Dixon and Theatre Director Andrew Keates, the campaign is currently looking for an initial 500 signatures at the following link.

There has been correspondence between the two leaders of the campaign and these can be found in the links below:

If you agree with the idea of having a Musical Direction Award (or similar) then please sign this petition. There shouldn’t be disparity between the number of awards dedicated to other creative aspects of a musical. Musicians and their directors deserve more credit.
