Approximately 50,000 votes were cast and NE Musicals won Gold in the Best Event category for their show, Oliver Twist, which was performed last Christmas at Joseph Rowntree Theatre.

The first York Mix Choice awards were held last Thursday night, sponsored by Yorkshire Profiles, and covered nominations in 20 different categories.

Approximately 50,000 votes were cast and NE Musicals won Gold in the Best Event category for their show, Oliver Twist, which was performed last Christmas at Joseph Rowntree Theatre.

NE is a theatre company in York creating new and exciting musical productions and have historically worked with Jorvik Radio on commercial media campaigns, promoting productions such as Wind in the Willows, Priscilla, Oliver, and most recently the sell-out production of "Into the Woods" the highly popular Wind in the Willows story. 

Regarding their fantastic win last week,  Steve Tearle, Chairman of NE Musicals said "We at NE are overjoyed to win the Best event award at York Mix choice awards It’s such a prestigious category and to win it for our production of Oliver! Is just Fantastic Thank you to everyone that voted for us it means the world to everyone at NE York".

NE formed a partnership last year cementing their relationship with Jorvik Radio, the official radio station partner with NE Musicals.  

Jorvik Radio also runs competitions for the public to win tickets to NE performances with opportunities to obtain half price tickets through the Jorvik Radio website voucher scheme.

Steve and his team now have rehearsals well under way for their next performance: "Grease the Musical", at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre from Tuesday 25th to Saturday 29th July (tickets: Grease (josephrowntreetheatre.co.uk).  They have already announced their "Fiddler on the Roof" production for April 2024.

Robbie Burns, Jorvik Radio's Station Manager said: We’re absolutely delighted to learn that NE have received an award – it’s well-deserved! The entire team work tirelessly to plan, rehearse & perform fantastic productions. Their performance of Oliver! The Musical was something very special, and I can’t wait for Grease!

As the official media partner of NE, we couldn’t be prouder of a resilient, talented and genuine collective of thespians. Steve and the team should be extremely proud of their achievements.”

As if Grease is not enough to work on, NE are joining the line-up for the YORK PROMS and will be performing during the main show and also during the interval. York Proms is on Sunday 18th June in Museum Gardens (York Proms Picnic Concert 10 July 2022 | Buy Tickets Now).

And, of course, NE will be taking part in York Pride in two weeks time when Jorvik Radio will join them on their stand and in the parade.
