Catching up – And the envelope please … 2013 Critter, CAT and Betty Awards

I’ve been taking it a bit easy this summer blog-wise, so time to catch up a bit. I’ve just posted the Fall season, so check out what’s coming up on Calgary’s musical theatre scene – a lighter season than usual, but some interesting picks. A few I’m looking forward to are a steampunk version of My Fair Lady (Front Row Centre), a rare performance of Hedwig and the Angry Inch (Sage Theatre) – which I’ve never seen but heard great things about – and a stage version of one of my favourite movies, Big – The Musical (Storybook Theatre). All three of these are Calgary community theatre companies, known for their quality work.

And now to step back a bit, summer is awards season in the Calgary theatre world. In case you missed them, here are the winners in the musical theatre categories that were announced in July and August:
