On Monday June 25th the Toronto theatre community celebrated another fantastic year with the 33rd annual Dora Mavor Moore Awards.  The event was held at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, with a pre-show VIP reception at the Sony Centre and a post-show street party that went until the wee hours of Tuesday morning.  The event was hosted by Thom Allison, who recently returned home to the GTA after more than a year on Broadway in Priscilla Queen of the Desert, and is now earning rave reviews for his performance as Coalhouse Walker in Shaw Festival’s Ragtime.  

Stars and supporters of our thriving theatre scene came out to the support the event, packing the St. Lawrence Centre and the street for the party under the stars.  It was a night filled with diverse winners, with Obsidian Theatre, Acting Up Stage and Theatre Passe Muraille enjoying big wins for Topdog/Underdog, Caroline or Change and Crash.  

Ruth Howard, the founding artistic director of Jumblies Theatre won the George Luscombe Award for mentorship, while Richard Rose took home the Barbara Hamilton Memorial Award for being an advocate for performing arts in Canada.  The Honourable Michael Chan was on hand to present the Pauline McGibbon Award to Ravi Jain, and the Silver Ticket Award went to Christopher House.  

BWW was thrilled to be on hand to cover the event, and excited to have partnered with TAPA on a great red carpet special featuring some adorable youngsters interviewing some of the city’s top theatre folk.  We’re pleased to bring our readers these photographs from the show, as well as the pre and post party events.

Kelly Cameron Kelly Cameron's love affair with the theatre began when she was just five years old, on an outing to see the Original Canadian Cast of Les Miserables at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. She instantly fell in love, and is honoured to be representing the Toronto contingent of BroadwayWorld as Senior Editor overseeing the GTA region.

Her writing career started almost by accident, though it has always been in her blood as her Mom was an English teacher who firmly believed in the importance of being able to turn a phrase. She also loved sharing her love of theatre with her students (and her children), and was a staunch supporter of the arts in Toronto.

When not at the theatre, you can usually find Kelly with a Starbucks in one hand and her BlackBerry in the other, tweeting, reading or doing something quirky and clumsy for the sake of getting that next big story.

She's incredibly grateful to the amazing Toronto theatre community who have embraced her with open arms, giving her the greatest gift a little redheaded theatre geek could ever ask for - getting to be a part of this vibrant arts and culture scene. She may have never had the skills to be on the stage, but is thankful every day she gets to write about the inspiring people who do.
