That’s a Wrap! Saying Goodbye to the 2018 Season

It’s nearly time to say goodbye to 2018. But before we do, we want to say a massive THANK YOU to every single individual who has been part of our season.

Whether you were on the stage, behind the scenes, out the front of the house, in the audience, interacting with us online, or a parent / partner / friend of our Prima family helping them to be part of the magic – we say a huge and heartfelt THANKS.

It’s been a huge year for us, starting out with Unforgettable, then on to Carrie, our Millennium Theatre Restaurant and culminating in Shrek The Musical. And somewhere in there we managed to squeeze in a few trivia nights as well as our very first Open Mic Night.

It takes an army of dedicated and incredibly talented people to make magic¬†happen on stage, and we’re very proud knowing we have some of the absolute best!

Thank you to each and every person who has been part of Prima’s 2018. We wish you a wonderful festive season & can’t wait to see you again in 2019!

Congratulations Gold Palm Theatre Award Winners, Finalists & Nominees!
