2010 Les Prix Rideau Awards Nominations

On Monday night, the nominations for the 4th annual Les Prix Rideau Awards were announced and I am kind of pleased that the show I was in at the Ottawa Fringe Festival (albeit for one performance only) was nominated for Outstanding Fringe Production. This was the show we also took to the Calgary Fringe Festival.

I loved working on the Last Goddamned Performance Piece and I would do it again in a second if the opportunity presented itself.

The only show I didn’t see among all the nominees was Turn of the Screw and with all the nominations it got, I really wish I had been able to. That’s the unfortunate thing with theatre awards as opposed to film awards. When film awards are announced the movie can get a whole new life out of it, whereas with the theatre you can just be disappointed you missed it. I try to avoid that disappointment by seeing as much as possible, but there’s always one or two that slip away.

Ah well! A big congratulation to all the nominees and I will see you on April 10th!
