The Canberra Area Theatre awards for last year’s season were held on Saturday night, with the Gold CAT going to Candy Burgess of Batemans Bay.
The full list of winners can be seen on their website.
Ms Burgess’s award was for outstanding achievements with the Bay Theatre Players, Batemans Bay.
I found it noteworthy that while the majority of awards did go to Canberrans, there was a remarkable contingent of winners from Bowral, Merimbula, Orange and Wagga Wagga. Are regional areas getting more artsy, or are they just getting more noticed now?
