Dear faithful readers,
We apologize for not keeping you up to date about all our happenings, we know this has been very stressful for you.
May Can's Tony Adams and Cory Thibert perfomed in PRINCESS IVONA earlier this month, also featuring Leslie Cserepy and Stage Managed by our own Emily Carvell. It was a lot of fun to work on, there was a lot of good feedback about the show, we figured out that we look way better with make-up than without... Thanks to everyone who came out to see it.
Prix Rideau Awards nominations were announced recently.
Wolves > boys was nominated for Outstanding New Creation
Tony Adams and Cory Thibert were both nominated for the Emerging Artist award, as seperate people, which is a huge step for us... too bad its in the same category which doesnt help define us as individuals.
Our very own Mado was nominated for Outstanding female performance
Our friends were also nominated, Jodi Sprung-Boyd was nominated for Outstanding Direction for The Open Couple, and Mi Casa's Live from the Belly of a Whale was also nominated for Outstanding New Creation.
All very exciting stuff, the Rideau Awards also did their first Nominee Themed Photo shoot, the theme was "Jump into bed" Here's a little taste.
