Mountview at the Olivier Awards and the Black British Theatre Awards

Last weekend saw Mountview success at two major awards ceremonies: the Black British Theatre Awards and the Olivier Awards.

We were thrilled to see our alumni excel at the Black British Theatre Awards with recent graduate Noah Thomas taking home the Best Male Actor In A Musical Award for his debut and leading role in Everybody’s Talking About Jamie at Apollo Theatre. Nicholas McLean won Best Supporting Actor In A Musical for his role as Boq in Wicked at Apollo Victoria Theatre. Massive congratulations to them both, we couldn’t be prouder!

The Olivier Awards also took place at the weekend. Earlier this year Mountview’s Joint CEO’s Sarah Preece and Stephen Jameson were honoured with Special Recognition Olivier Awards for their achievements in relocating Mountview from Wood Green to Peckham, and for promoting accessibility and diversity. You can see them accepting their award in the Pre-show celebrations:

Friends of Mountview and visiting artists Paule Constable and Morgan Lloyd Malcolm were also recognised at the Oliviers. Paule Constable won Best Lighting Design for The Ocean at the End of the Lane at the National Theatre. Meanwhile, Morgan Lloyd Malcolm’s incredible Emilia, also performed at Mountview by our third year Actors last year, took home three Olivier awards: The Noel Coward Award for Best Entertainment or Comedy Play, The Royal Albert Hall Award for Best Sound Design and The Olivier Award for Best Costume Design.
