The judges are finalising the shortlists for the Wales Theatre Awards 2018.
These unique awards recognise excellence in opera, dance and theatre in Wales and the role of critics reviewing in both English and Welsh for print and online.
There are four new awards for 2018, the Best Touring Show in the English Language Award and the Best Touring Show in the Welsh Language Award, Best Choreographer Award and the Wales and the World Award.
The touring awards recognise that taking work around Wales is the cultural life blood of our nation and presents particular challenges that are now faced by productions that do not have to travel extensively around Wales, beyond a home or host venue.
The Best Choreographer is for Dance.
The Wales and the World Award recognises an outstanding achievement in taking the arts from Wales internationally.
The Awards Show takes place at The Riverfront, Newport on Saturday, January 27 and tickets are now on sale. The show contains music, dance, song, theatre and lots of laughs and surprises along the way. Tickets are available at:
There will also be free family events at The Riverfront during the afternoon of the show.
