SMCP receives 6 nominations, 1 award
St. Marys Community Players is thrilled to receive six nominations and one award for its 2016 production of Steel Magnolias written by Robert Harling and performed at the St. Marys Town Hall Theatre last fall.
Steel Magnolias is a momentous and challenging ensemble piece about the funny, prickly, devoted relationships between six vibrant and very different women. The six all woman cast delivered brilliantly written lines that were
filled with tart and witty dialogue. They took the audience on a journey experiencing the unbending strength and the flowery moments of these six friends. WODL Award winner Rachel Brewer says, “I’m just very honoured to have been nominated with such talented
women, and extremely blessed that I won such an award! I’m also very grateful for everyone who helped pull this show together and helped me really find my character; I couldn’t have done it without them!”
“It’s so wonderful to be recognized for the theatre work that we stage. SMCP is proud to provide our community with quality productions and we couldn’t do it without the talent of the cast, the crew and the countless hours of volunteer work”, says SMCP President, Patti Muma-Cook.
What’s next for the Community Players? Now they take you on another journey, this time with the classic play The Glass Menagerie written by Tennessee Williams. Brilliantly directed by Denise Fergusson (The participation of this Artist is arranged by permission of Canadian Actors’ Equity Association). On stage April 27 – May 7, 2017.
