Alex Bourne, who played the part of the devilish seducer Darryl Van Horne in The Watermill Theatre’s production of The Witches of Eastwick, has been nominated for Best Performance In A Musical in the 2013 TMA awards.

The show, which was directed by Craig Revel Horwood, played to packed houses throughout its eight-week run at the theatre.

The Awards will be presented on Sunday 20 October at a lunchtime ceremony at London’s Guildhall in the City of London.

Hedda Beeby, Artistic and Executive Director of The Watermill Theatre said: “We are delighted that Alex has been nominated for this prestigious award.

"He made the part of Darryl Van Horne his own and it’s no mean feat to sing, dance, play a guitar and seduce three women within the confines of The Watermill stage every night.

"It’s a credit to Alex and the whole company of actor-musicians that performed in The Witches of Eastwick that the show was so much enjoyed and played to 94% capacity.”
