Helpmann Award Nominees Filled with Fringe Artists

The annual Helpmann Awards recognise distinguished artistic achievement and excellence in the many disciplines of Australia's vibrant live performance sectors, including musical theatre, contemporary music, comedy, cabaret, regional touring, presentations for children and young people, opera, classical music, theatre, dance and physical theatre. 

The Helpmann Awards were established in 2001 to recognise, celebrate and promote Australia’s live performance industry, similar to the Tony Awards on Broadway and the Olivier Awards in London.

This year, there are heaps of Adelaide Fringe artists in the nominee line up!
