Surrey Little Theatre’s production of “The Last Lifeboat” was a big winner at the Community Theatre Coalition’s awards gala.

The event, held on Saturday (Sept. 10) at White Rock’s Coast Capital Playhouse, is the “Oscars” for non-professional theatre companies in Metro Vancouver.

“The Last Lifeboat,” a play about the builder of the doomed “Titanic” cruise ship, won for Best Production and earned Dale Kelly the Best Director award.

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.
