Nash Theatre has won great recognition. The Association of Community Theatre, Queensland chapter, made annual Awards until 2015.
Nash did exceptionally well in these awards. During the last years that awards were made, 25 shows produced 32 nominations resulting in 12 wins, 11 trophies for Runner-up, and Highly Commended 5 times.
The culture of community theatre recognises that cast, crew and production team support each other in bringing a play to the public. Every person who contributes something, anything, to a show is equally important to its success. The award categories avoided singling out individuals.
