Leon Sinden Awards 2019 – Fiona Wood and David Rankine

Huge congratulations to Fiona Wood and David Rankine, who each picked up an award at Pitlochry Festival Theatre’s 25th annual Leon Sinden Awards.

Audiences and visitors throughout the theatre’s Summer Season have been placing their votes for Best Actor and Actress in a Supporting Role, and the annual awards were presented onstage after the final performance, in the full six-show Season, of Summer Holiday, at the Theatre on Saturday night, ahead of an extra week of the musical due to popular demand.

This year’s winner of Best Supporting Actress was Fiona Wood for her portrayal of Lily, the ukelele-playing Nun in Blonde Bombshells of 1943, and David Rankine picked up the award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance as Eddie, the nice-but-dim ‘maid’, in Blithe Spirit.

Artistic Director, Elizabeth Newman presented both actors with their awards.

Well done, Fiona and David!
