What a fantastic night Sept 9, 2017 at the awards gala! There were two lifetime achievement awards which made me laugh (a LOT) and shed a few tears. Congrats to Mike Busswood and Carol Seitz. Wow, being new to community theatre I was in awe of the love these two icons exuded from their pals and family speaking about them and to their own heartfelt thank you speeches. Immense dedication to the community, passion, tireless work, paving the way for artists to come!
Here is the link to all the award winners! Our own Ryan Mooney won Best Director (MUSICAL)
The performances were also spectacular including:

I had a chance to attend the 1st rehearsal of POSH. I had seen the movie The Riot Club and was curious how they would do this with live theatre. The Artistic Director, Ryan Mooney, from Fighting Chance Productions was there to welcome everyone. We stayed for the first few hours to watch the read through. WOW! We have such amazing talent and true to form and the goal of FCP is to have 50% of the actors new to the scene. Lucky for them! If you have a chance to get a subscription to see the whole lineup of 2017/18 shows (starting in September) you really should. Why?
