West Bridgford-based Unlimited Theatre have won a theatre award as part of the Young Creative Awards last month.
The awards were presented at Nottingham Playhouse, with the theatre section being a new category for 2018.
Organised by Nottingham singer Rob Green, the youth theatre group were given the red- carpet treatment for the evening and were awarded a well-deserved cash prize for their efforts.
The performance was showcased two weeks earlier at Lakeside Arts Theatre.
Nonsuch Theatre Company worked with YCA to launch the new theatre award, named Toolbox.
Groups that entered created a devised piece, using the same contents of a box to stimulate ideas for their performance.
Unlimited Theatre is based at Rushcliffe School and will be moving into the new arts build drama studio at the school when it opens in September.
Then the sessions move to a new 6pm to 8pm time slot on Wednesdays for 12 to 18 year olds.
The group, who have been running at the current venue for nearly three years, regularly perform at theatres across the region.
This year they have performed at the Regent Theatre in Stoke and are taking a devised piece, based around mental health in young people, to the Yorkshire Youth Theatre festival next month.
Run by former Nottingham Playhouse Youth Theatre director, Sarah Stephenson, the group work at an advanced level for young people interested in a career in acting.
Often the group devise work, rather than using a script, and perform using physical theatre, which develops creative thinking skills.
