They’re like the US Tony Awards for theatre but different — and Musical Theatre Gisborne (MTG) is up for seven of them. MTG has received seven Zony award nominations for its 2018 production of Footrot Flats.

The Zony awards were established to recognise performance and production excellence among musical theatre companies in New Zealand.

MTG’s Mike Higgs has been nominated in the best props category, Scott McSloy was nominated for best sound design while Heidi Parkes has been nominated for best wardrobe design.

For his role as Cooch, Footrot Flats’ friend to animals, Peter Grealish is in the running for a best supporting male in a musical award. Janet Roderick is up for a best musical direction Zony while Teresa Campbell has been nominated for a best vocal direction award.

The company as a whole has been nominated for best musical.

The Zony awards evening will be held in Tauranga on October 5.
