|Marcus, Holly and Michael from DuffleBag Theatre still make each other laugh|
Once again, Prologue hosted its Christmas party at the office, for the artists on its roster, board and staff members. Here are some of our best shots. We were truly happy to see you all in such great spirit.
Note that Prologue will be open for business until December 23 and will reopen on January 5.
Mel Hurst, Chair of the Board, and Patty Jarvis, Executive Director, welcomed everyone.
The winners of this year's Paula Awards were announced during the party. Two of them were in the room: Marla Brennan (Faustwork Mask Theatre) and Anne Rankin (Shoestring Opera). The third winners, Kahurangi Maori Dance Theatre, could not be there because they are in New Zealand!
Patty and Pat McCarthy turned the beloved Twas the Night before Christmas into Twas the Night before the Party (see text below)!
It was a tough crowd...
So they cranked it up a notch, which was very well received by the audience!
Someone in the audience slept through the whole thing (Cadence's new recruit!) but Pat and Patty did not take it personally at all. (Once again congratulations Kurt and Gaelan!)
We found out that Émilie (Prologue's own new recruit) is a die-hard Christmas fan!
