The production also won Best Lighting and Sound.
Laura, from Winsford, said: “Gosh! I go to the CTG awards tonight and get six nominations and four awards – best light and sound, best dramatic achievement, best overall production and best director.
“That is what happens when you have an amazing cast and crew, thank you all so much.”
All four actors, Chris Saunders as Jacob Marley, Chris Finney as Scrooge, Matthew Lambert as The Record Keeper and Rick Beech, received nominations for Best Actor.
