The NAPTAs are run by a voluntary group with a passion for both musical theatre and the aims of the NAPTA Trust. We are always keen for involvement from enthusiastic people to help ensure the future success of the Awards and the Trust objectives.

We also welcome help to guarantee the success of the NAPTA Awards and the objectives of the NAPTA Charitable Trust. Come onboard as a sponsor of the Awards Evening or donate to the Trust. Please read on for more information...

Below are just some of the areas you can become involved in.
Please contact us for more information.

Organising Committee
The NAPTA Organising Committee is responsible for overseeing the selection of judges, the judging process, and for organising and the Awards Evening - including funding. Please note this Committee has no involvement in the nominee or winner decisions of the Awards.

Judges are appointed by the NAPTA organising committee for a maximum period of two consecutive years. Participating societies are called upon to nominate suitable members to fill the 5 annual judging roles. If you are interested in becoming a NAPTA Judge, or would like to nominate someone, please contact your participating theatre group.

The Awards Evening
We are always looking for people to be involved in the annual Awards Evening. This can be anything from creative direction of the entertainment, helping to set up on the day, technical support such as sound, lighting, backstage, and fronting the evening in the roles of MC and MC Assistant.

Nominations and Sponsors Reception
Generally in December each year, all participating NAPTA organisations along with all NAPTA Sponsors come together in preparation for the Annual Awards Evening. Previous Scholarship recipients perform or present, Volunteer of the Year Awards are given, each sponsor is introduced, and the current season nominees are announced.

The NAPTA Charitable Trust is seeking sponsorship from companies or individuals who value volunteerism, dedicated community service, excellence in performance, and supporting emerging talent.

There are two main sponsorship tiers, Award and Event Sponsors. We welcome discussion to customise each sponsorship to make it work for you and your objectives, or to discuss a bespoke arrangement at a higher or lower level.
