NEWSFLASH: “i think i can” nominated for FIVE 2007 Dora Awards!
So. Remember when I kept bugging everyone to come watch my children’s show?
Remember how excited I was when it went up, and how hard we were working in rehearsals? Remember the pics I posted?
Well, at a press conference today at First Canadian Place, the news came out:
Out of OVER 200 shows, the play I co-created with Florence Gibson was nominated for not one, not two… but FIVE 2007 Dora Mavor Moore Awards! Including:
– OUTSTANDING NEW MUSICAL
– OUTSTANDING PRODUCTION OF A MUSICAL
– OUTSTANDING DIRECTION OF A MUSICAL
– OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE, FEMALE IN A PRINCIPAL ROLE
– OUTSTANDING SOUND DESIGN/COMPOSITION
How do I feel? I’m friggin’ excited, so proud, and so honoured to be recognized by a jury of peers and professionals in the theatre industry.
So, on Monday June 25, the fancy shmancy award show takes place at the Winter Garden Theatre. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.
Here’s the link for all Dora info:
You’ll also see all the nominees at the bottom of the page.
** I want to say CONGRATULATIONS to every single person involved in all the shows that were nominated, and to EVERYONE keeping theatre alive in this country. Let’s keep creating good theatre.
** And if you’re reading this- keep SUPPORTING good theatre. Your support makes all the difference.
Lastly, we ALL worked hard on this production. It was a lengthy, three year process to put “i think i can” on to the stage. I’m glad for every minute of it.
If you didn’t see the show, please at least send your positive energy this way and leave your thoughts. We all appreciate the love!
