WINNIPEG THEATRE AWARDS IS A HIT!

Winnipeg, MB

November 13, 2017

We're so very happy to have accomplished the first ever Winnipeg Theatre Awards event night! The whole evening was a roaring success, thanks to the volunteers who made it happen and the audience in attendance. And of course, to everyone in the theatre community who put their heart and soul into their work throughout the 2016-2017 season. We are both proud and honoured to celebrate our community!

We could not have achieved our goal without the generous sponsorship The Gail Asper Family Foundation and our supporters at Bargen Brown LLP, Canadian Actors Equity, ACTRA Manitoba and IATSE Local 63.
