The nominations for The Great British Pantomime Awards have been announced, and Richard David-Caine, who played Herman The Henchman in Worthing Theatres recent 2017 pantomime Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, has been shortlisted for the title of Best Supporting Male.
Established in 2016, The Great British Pantomime Awards were introduced as a way to celebrate pantomime, where judges travel across the UK to see over 200 shows and nominate awards for best production values and performers.
The winners will be announced at the 2018 awards ceremony on Sunday 15th April at New Wimbledon Theatre, hosted by Christopher Biggins with special guests.
Amanda O’Reilly, Head of Culture for Adur & Worthing Councils, says “Richard has always been a brilliant performer, when we first cast him in Jack Frost three years ago he was so popular with our family audiences; we were keen to get him back on the stage in Worthing for Snow White. He brought amazing comedy value as Herman The Henchman, and as a regular on CBeebies alongside his Swashbuckle partner Joseph Elliot, they made the perfect combination for the show. We’re so pleased to hear he has been nominated for a national award and wish him lots of luck ahead of the winners being selected.”
