Alistair wins theatre award 17 years after he was first nominated for it

A West Huntspill actor is celebrating this week after winning a top theatrical award... 17 years after he was first nominated for it.

Alistair Murray, a member of the West Huntspill Players, has been named Best Supporting Actor at the 2012 Rose Bowl Awards, which shine the spotlight on the region's best theatrical talent.

He was nominated for his role as Reverend Arthur Humphries in the farce See How They Run, which was performed earlier this year, as pictured below.

Alistair told "I was nominated for the identical award 17 years ago when I played the same part in our 1995 performance of See How They Run, but I didn't win."

"It's therefore extra sweet to have won now so many years later," he said.

"I've never won an award like this before so am actually quite humbled and really chuffed - it's a great honour."

The Rose Bowl Awards ceremony was held at the Winter Gardens in Weston where the winners were announced.

West Huntspill Players' next production is called Improbable Fiction and is to be staged from November 21st to 24th. This is a sharp comedy and affectionate satire with many laughs, twists and turns that is sure to be popular with audiences. Tickets are available by calling Mary Parish on 01278 785651.
