The production, staged last spring at the company’s Clayton-area theatre, also won awards for lead actor (Ben Odberg) and lighting design (Miles Lavkulich).

White Rock Players’ production of “Boeing Boeing” earned supporting-role awards for actors Tegan Verheul and Robert Feher.

Ten theatre companies are part of the region’s Community Theatre Coalition, or CTC. For a full list of award winners, visit Community-theatre.com.
