Jessie Awards 2010

The results are in! We had a spectacular night yesterday celebrating the excellent artistry, innovation, and beauty of the theatre in Vancouver. The PT family was well-represented among the nominees as well as the winner's circle.

First and foremost, we are THRILLED to announce that Naomi Sider won for her costume design for THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE! Her challenge was impressive: to create costume pieces that would realistically live in a dusty old spare room while still magically transforming the actors into lions, beavers, witches, and fauns - to name a few. Clearly, she met that challenge brilliantly! Congrats, Naomi!

Our girl Sarah Rodgers, who most recently directed GODSPELL for us got a well-deserved win for her direction of BILLY BISHOP GOES TO WAR. Anthony F. Ingram, who was most recently on the PT stage as Pastor Jake in REFUGE OF LIES and who will be directing next season's production of PLAYLAND won for his role in FROZEN. Also winning for his acting was Craig Erickson for his role in WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?

Finally, we would love to give a blog-hug to Kaylee Harwood who won the Most Promising Newcomer Award. She may not have yet taken on the PT stage, but as a TWU grad she is closely connected to the PT family and we couldn't be happier for her winning this special award. So well deserved!

Thanks to the Vancouver Theatre Sports League for hosting this wonderful night of celebration.
