We are delighted to share the news that we have been shortlisted for two awards at The Stage Awards 2018 – both for Regional Theatre of the Year and also for School of the Year.

Today the Royal Exchange are celebrating a double nomination at the Stage Awards 2018. The theatre has been nominated in two separate categories - Regional Theatre of the Year, which the Exchange won in 2016, and also for School of the Year, in which the work of our Young Company and their access to training in a professional theatre environment has been recognised.

Alistair Smith, editor of The Stage and chair of the judging panel, said: "I'm delighted The Stage Awards once again celebrate the achievements of theatres from across the UK... This year's shortlist highlights the theatrical talent among organisations of all sizes, right across the UK."

Congratulations to all of the other amazing nominees. Winners will be announced on January 26, 2018 at a ceremony at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. Keep your fingers crossed for us and we’ll keep you posted.
