Mountview Graduates Light Up Awards Season

Theatre awards season is well and truly upon us, with a number of major ceremonies taking place in the last few weeks. As ever, Mountview alumni have been in the mix for honours, with a couple walking away with awards.

Hamilton’s Giles Terera has been particularly busy, picking up the Olivier award for Best Actor in a Musical, the Broadway World UK award for Best Actor in a New Production of a Musical and a nomination for Best Actor in a Musical for the upcoming WhatsOnStage Awards.

His Hamilton co-star Cleve September has been racking up nominations too, for both the Olivier award and WhatsOnStage award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Musical. Eugenius’ Daniel Buckley joins Cleve on the nominations list for the latter.

Luke Bayer walked away from the Broadway World UK awards with the Best Performance by an Understudy/Alternate gong for his role in Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, a category where Jordan Luke Gage also got a nod for Bat Out of Hell. Tyrone Huntley and Maria Aberg also received nominations, for Best Actor in a New Production of a Play and Best Direction of a New Production of a Musical respectively.

Away from theatre and into the world of film, Andrea Thornton’s short film Attention Please won the Best Short Documentary – Mental Health award at the Atlantic City Cinefest after being screened at Cannes earlier in the year.

Congratulations to all our graduates nominated for awards and to the many graduates involved in award-winning productions this season.
