Grace and Glorie cast and crew achieve glory

After a successful dinner theatre run at the Kitimat Royal Canadian Legion, On Cue Players’ production of Grace and Glorie, directed by Gareen Ball and featuring Lesley MacAlasdair and Sarina St. Germaine departed for Prince Rupert to compete in the Theatre B.C. Skeena Zone Drama Competition.

Over three nights, plays from the host city, Prince Rupert, Terrace and Kitimat performed before small but appreciative audiences. They were adjudicated by Joan Maclean, actor, director, teacher and song writer from the Lower Mainland.

The On Cue Players production represented Kitimat well, successfully achieving two best actress awards, (Lesley and Sarina); Best Set Design and Visual Presentation, (Moreno Guizzo and his team); Best Sound, (Diane Duschesne); Best Backstage Cooperation, (cast and crew under the direction of Gareen’s able stage manager – Luci Leite).

The People’s Choice Awards went to Grace and Glorie for Best Show, Best Set, Best Performance by a Woman – Lesley


It should be mentioned that Kevin Eastman took Best Youth/Novice Performance for his rendition of Stephen Leacock’s, My Financial Career and Christine Maggs, as producer kept the whole thing ticking over and paid the bills.
