An award ceremony will take place on Saturday March 23rd where our festival adjudicator will decide the recipients of the Calgary Region Awards including Outstanding Performer, Outstanding Direction, Outstanding Technical Merit, Outstanding New Work, and Outstanding Production. The recipient of this last award will represent the Calgary Region at the Provincial Festival happening in May in Grand Prairie.
