I am honoured to have been nominated for a Saskatoon and Area Theatre Award again this year – and in a new category (for me)! I am humbled to be nominated for Outstanding Lighting Design for my work on Two Corpses Go Dancing (Two Unruly Gentlemen/Live Five). I’m in very good company: my classmate Jared Beattie, my collaborator (including on Two Corpses) Will Brooks, Ami Farrow, Kenilee Kelher, and Guido Tondino (very talented artists all).
Congratulations to all the nominees in every cattegory – many of whom I am pleased to count among my collaborators, mentors, and friends. See you all at the gala on September 28th!
Here are some photos from Two Corpses Go Dancing:
I am so proud and humbled to have been nominated for a Saskatoon and Area Theatre Award for Achievement in Directing for my work on Stop Kiss. That play received 3 other SATAward nominations (Outstanding Performance (Female) for Jenna-Lee Hyde, Outstanding Set Design for Jenna Maren, Outstanding Sound Design for Gilles Zolty. My collaborators Jenna Maren, Angela Kemp, and Dakota Hebert (on Stop Kiss, Stop Kiss and Saskatchewan Outdoors respectively) were also nominated for Outstanding Emerging Artist. Congrats to all the nominees! The awards ceremony takes place at the end of September!
I won! I am very honoured to have received this award. The list of nominees was full of friends and collaborators for whom I have an enormous amount of respect.
Congratulations are due to my fellow nominees Jacqueline Block, Jenna Maren, Anthony MacMahon, Adam Naismith, Anna Seibel, and Aaron Shingoose – as well as to all the other nominees and recipients.
The ceremony was full of energy and enthusiasm for Saskatoon theatre. Here’s to keeping that momentum going, and to continuing to support emerging artists like myself as we all journey together telling stories!
