Pivot Theatre Wins at Mainstage

Perfect Arrangement picks up four Thespian awards from TheatreBC's Festival

On July 12th, the cast and crew of Perfect Arrangement represented the Fraser Valley Zone at TheatreBC's Mainstage Festival, this year held right in our backyard at the Surrey Arts Centre. This year's adjudicator, Kathryn Shaw, met with the cast and crew the next morning for a coffee critique, where they answered questions and reworked some scenes from the show.
