Double joy for theatre as it scoops prize once again

Have your say

Sheffield Theatres has won a prestigious title for the second time.

It took home the Regional Theatre of the Year 2014 prize at The Stage Awards in London yesterday.

It is the first time that any theatre has won the award twice.

Sheffield Theatres, which comprises the Crucible, Lyceum and Studio theatres, was recognised for the range and quality of its in-house productions and programming of touring shows.

Chief executive Dan Bates said: “Last year was truly unforgettable for Sheffield Theatres, with our work seen on a local, national and international level.”
