Hull Truck theatre announce that they have been nominated for two UK Theatre Awards this year. UK Theatre is the UK’s leading theatre and performing arts membership organisation and they’ve been lucky enough to make a shortlist of just three venues for both Digital Innovation and the Workforce Award.
Additionally, they would like to extend their congratulations to Kudzai Sitima for her nomination in the Best Performance in a Play category. A well-deserved acknowledgement for her performance as Phyllis ‘Princess’ in Princess & The Hustler, a co-production with Eclipse Theatre Company and Bristol Old Vic that they were lucky enough to be involved in. The show was also performed here in Hull this March as part of it’s UK Tour.
Hull Truck Executive Director, Janthi Mills-Ward tweeted: “Go team @HullTruck, huge work has gone into both workforce development and digital innovation to seek new and exciting ways to make our work and industry ever more accessible. It’s great to see everyone’s hard work recognised #UKTAwards”
In light of this aim to make their work more accessible, Hull Truck Theatre have recognised that price can be a barrier to young people attending the theatre, especially if it’s something new that they’re not sure they’ll like. With that in mind they have picked a number of shows that they are offering at £6 each to under 26’s saving up to £18.50 per ticket.
To redeem the offer, those under 26 years of age should simply quote or enter promo code ‘6under26’ when booking. Check their website for full terms and conditions.
