THERE were moments of exuberance, spirited cheering, speeches filled with emotion and gratitude, and lots of singing along.
All in all, it was a fitting atmosphere for the 25th and final Zonta Awards for Performing Arts, held at Quality Hotel Wangaratta Gateway last Friday night.
The awards were contested by a large number of theatre groups throughout the North East, with 10 shows being considered for awards in all, and shows were considered in both the drama and musical categories.
Wangaratta Players Inc won a number of awards on the night in the drama category.
Its production of The One Day of the Year, produced to coincide with the Anzac centenary, performed well, winning an award for ‘best lighting’.
