The 2012 My Theatre Award Nominees

By // Theatre

My Theatre TrophyWelcome to this year’s My Theatre Awards. This is our chance to weigh in on what we think were the best productions, performances and other theatrical contributions of the year. Any production that one of our reviewers saw between January 1st and December 31st 2012 is qualified for an award. (Remounts only qualify if we’re seeing them for the first time. IE: Soulpepper’s Death of a Salesman qualified but Studio 180’s Normal Heart did not because they won everything last year).

Vote for your favourites in the comments section below, via Twitter, on Facebook, or by emailing kelly@myentertainmentworld.ca. And, as always, all nominees are invited to contact us to sign up to be a part of our annual Nominee Interview Series.

Congratulations to all the nominees!

    My votes:

    Regional:
    Best Supporting Actress – Juliet Bowler, The Pillowman
    Best Actor – Cameron Gosselin, The Pillowman
    Best Director – Sarah Gadzowicz, The Pillowman
    Best Production – The Pillowman, Flat Earth Theatre

  3. Emma Johnson says:

    I would like to vote in the REGIONAL/INDEPENDENT category for the following:

    Best Supporting Actress — Juliet Bowler in The Pillowman (Flat Earth Theatre)

    Best Production — The Pillowman (Flat Earth Theatre)

    Best Director — Sarah Gazdowicz for The Pillowman (Flat Earth Theatre)

    Best Actor — Cameron Gosselin in The Pillowman (Flat Earth Theatre)

    I saw this show twice and I agree with the review, it needs a longer run, it was amazing, both times. It stayed in my head for months. Juliet Bowler’s performance especially was unsettling and evocative and the production was stunning.

  29. Melissa says:

    I vote for Juliet Bowler for Best Supporting Actress in the Regional/Independent category for The Flat Earth Company’s production of The Pillowman. Her performance was chilling (in a role written for a man) and mesmerizing. This show was mounted during a Boston heat wave in a claustrophic airless room that was perfect for this play but plenty hard on actors. Their commitment and concentration kept the wilting audience with them 100% throughout both acts despite the inferno.

  30. Tammy Polan says:

    My nominations relate to the Regional/Independent section of the awards. I’d like to nominate Graham Fleming for Best Male Actor and The Laramie Project for Best Ensemble. Bravo!

    Best supporting actor: james bocock / murph
    This play was funny, dramatic, and involved! The cast was at work ,really giving you a sense of each character as the story line unfolded. Not only was James’ accent most believable and easily brought forth, his character made you sit forward and stay interested. The chemistry he and his co star “kate” brought was commendable by pure talent one finds when they work from within oneself. Fantastic work argos productions!
