40 English and 11 French professional theatre productions were juried by two teams of local arts professionals (14 English and 10 French) during the 2009 calendar year. Nominations were submitted by secret ballot and tallied by local accountants, Chong Pelot and Marcil-Lavallée. Complete details on award definitions, terms and criteria are available at www.rideauawards.ca

Les Prix Rideau Awards initiative was undertaken in late 2006 as a result of discussion at an open meeting of the regional Canadian Actorsʼ Equity Association. The program aims to raise the profile of locally-produced professional theatre by celebrating its successes.

  2. Hey Nancy… thanks for posting the release. Small correction (and this is my fault for not catching it before sending the release out) … Children’s Republic nomination under Outstanding New Creation: the producer credit should be augmented to include OSSD (they coproduced the show with GCTC). thanks!

  3. oh, also just noticed you’re missing the heading for Nouvelle création de l’année…

  4. or rather, it’s not bolded… sorry.

    • Hi Judi, thanks for your comments! I’ve made all the necessary corrections.
