And the envelope please #2 … Calgary’s 2012 Community Theatre Award Winners

                                                                                                                                         Here’s the Calgary Alliance of Community Theatre press release, including the whole list and nothing but the list (OK, maybe a few other things):

The 2012 CAT Awards a Bronco Busting Success!

And the big winner was…

Avenue Q stampeded to the finish line at Saturday night’s 9th Annual Community Theatre Awards by taking all eleven of the categories for which it was nominated. The show, hosted by Calgary’s Tory Doctor, was a Glitter and Cowboy spectacular as the 100th Anniversary of the Stampede was celebrated with the theme “The Best Little Theatre Companies in the West”. The U of C’s Rozsa Centre was alive with the sounds of friends & cast mates reuniting to celebrate the accomplishments of the last season and to look forward to the next season starting in September. 

The evening’s award show was accompanied by performances from Rodeo & Julie-Ed, a production of The Dewdney Players of Okotoks, and a scene from Bare, a production by Cappucinno Musical Theatre as well as three fantastic videos written by Dan Gibbins and produced by Ian Pond. The evening opened with a glorious , cheesy song & dance number celebrating Community Theatre, written by Carl Bishop and directed and choreographed by Daisy Pond
 
The videos:
 
The celebration continued well into the night at the Last Defence Lounge in MacEwan Hall where after, in typical Tony award type tradition, spun off into a myriad of other gathering and parties. A great time was had by all.
