Helpmann Awards 2015

 

Helpmann Award Winners 2015

 

Congratulations to all 2015 Helpmann Award winners

 

Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) today congratulated all winners of the 2015 Helpmann Awards that were celebrated at a star-studded event in Sydney last night.

 

QPAC Chief Executive John Kotzas said in particular he wanted to thank the partners who have worked with QPAC to achieve nominations and awards wins at this year’s Helpmanns.

 

Kotzas said, “The high standard of artistic achievement that can be accomplished via our partnerships with artistic visionaries Leo Schofield and Jarrod Carland for Brisbane Baroque, as well as closer to home companies such as Circa, Expressions Dance Company, Opera Queensland and Griffith University, along with our fellow Australian performing arts centres in Sydney, Melbourne Perth and Canberra has been proven by this year’s accolades. 

 

“Creating art is a collaborative process and this has underpinned our shared success at these Awards. Such partnerships have been cultivated throughout QPAC’s history of presenting live performance in Queensland and we have been celebrating these relationships throughout this, our 30th anniversary year”, said Mr Kotzas.

Be ready to get on board as the hilarious Helpmann Award winning musical Anything Goes officially opens tonight (Tuesday 28 July) at Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC).

 

The new John Frost/Opera Australia production of Anything Goes was presented with three Helpmann Awards during last night’s star-studded awards ceremony at Sydney’s Capitol Theatre hosted by Todd McKenney. Caroline O’Connor won Best Female Actor in a Musical, Alex Rathgeber won Best Male Actor in a Supporting Role in a Musical, and Andrew Hallsworth won Best Choreography in a Musical.

 

Opera Australia Artistic Director Lyndon Terracini AM and leading Australian theatre producer John Frost AM were thrilled. “We are extremely proud of Anything Goes, and very happy for this well-deserved recognition for Caroline, Alex and Andrew,” they said. “The show was acclaimed by critics and audiences alike in Melbourne, and we can’t wait to open to Brisbane audiences tonight.”
