What a great night! We always love joining with our friends and colleagues to celebrate the year of theatre in Vancouver, and last night was no exception. We were thrilled to see John Voth, Peter Carlone, and Erla Faye Forsyth recognized for their roles in THE FOREIGNER, as well as the team of THE SEAFARER take the prize for Outstanding Production! Here's some shots from the night.
Congratulations to all the nominees and winners. In other friends-of-PT news, we were thrilled to see our friends at Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Theatre win the Critic's Choice Innovation Award for their production of THIS STAYS IN THE ROOM, Itsazoo and Chelsea Haberlin (currently directing our apprentices Pippa and Kenton in GRUESOME PLAYGROUND INJURIES) took Outstanding Production for Small Theatre with KILLER JOE. Frequent PT director Richard Wolfe received the John Moffat & Larry Lillo Award as well as Outstanding Direction for INSIDE THE SEED (featuring our friend Carl Kennedy). Emmelia Gordon, who played in MEASURE FOR MEASURE won for her role in DISSOLVE. Plus Drew Facey, nominated for THE SEAFARER, won for his designs for ART, PENELOPE, and body of work in Theatre for Young Audiences.
