Follow @playgirlreviews and the weekly #TheatreHour forum every Wednesday on Twitter for regular information and updates. Remember, we cannot possibly keep track of every great production so we rely on your continued feedback and support during the nomination process. Please keep supporting professional independent regional theatre; you would miss it if it  wasn’t there anymore.
