Calgary’s Alliance of Community Theatres’ (Calgary ACTS) “CAT” Awards were announced at the end of July. 22 productions from 10 local theatre companies are nominated for the 21 awards to be presented at the 9th annual ceremony on Saturday August 25th. There are a lot of musicals done by community theatres, so they are well-represented here. Nominees for musicals are found below, along with links to my reviews (sorry, I missed Bare, The Rocky Horror Show, Anne of Green Gables and other musicals playing last fall, as well as HMS Pinafore this spring, but that’s about it!):
