Everyone involved in these YAOS productions deserves massive thanks for their energy and ability to stage these first class productions. Some 70 amateur societies compete for the Rose Bowl awards each year, so there is exceptionally strong competition and it is no mean feat even to be nominated, let alone win any of these awards.
