On Monday Night 18th January 2016, all the winners of the 2015 Sydney Theatre Awards were announced in a star-studded gala ceremony. This year thirty-six Awards were presented, shared between nineteen Sydney productions, seen on stage during calendar year 2015.
The musical theatre categories were this year expanded to recognise the increased breadth of work across both the commercial and independent sector in 2015. Reflecting the recent growth in musical productions in Sydney, additional categories received awards this year.
Over 350 members of the Sydney theatre community gathered in the auditorium at Paddington RSL Club, to celebrate all the winners of the 2015 Sydney Theatre Awards. At the ceremony, you very quickly learn about how very many people it takes to keep a city of theatre going, and an example is MATILDA which has over two hundred people actively involved in the production.
