Theatre BC's Mainstage Gala Gala Awards Night is over and Emerald Pig's production of Trying by Joanna McCllend Glass was honored as the Best Production! According to adjudicator Dean Paul Gibson, Trying was the most outstanding production in every way. And then he repeated 'in every way." John Stuart and Emily Doreen Wilson were the king and queen of the ball, garnering Best Actor and Best Actress accolades. John received a standing ovation as he made his way to the podium to accept his award, his first Thespian award in his acting career.
I am so proud of Emerald Pig for winning the Municipal Advisory Committee on Accessibility Issues (MACAI) award for Accessibility in Recreation in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. Very humbling!

The butterflies are now free after a fabulous opening night! Kyler Banks, Rebecca Strom, Hazel Neill, and Adam Macdougall burst from their warm, protective, cocoons of rehearsal and soared under the bright lights of the stage of "life". Their metamorphosis was thrilling to watch as a director. Like any parent, I worried for my children's safety, hoping they wouldn't falter as they took their first steps, spoke their first words, and tested their wings.
