ABOUT COMMUNITY THEATRE COALITION

The CTC was formed in 1992 “to honour outstanding achievement in community theatre”. It is comprised of a maximum of 10 community theatre clubs from Vancouver to Langley. Each member group selects a member from their club to represent them as a ‘nominating representative’. The nominating reps are required to attend all of the approximately 30 plays entered annually.

Much like the “Tony” awards of New York’s theatre scene, at the end of the season, each rep casts their votes on a nomination ballot. Those ballots are tabulated with the resulting nominees in each of 21 categories including both performance (acting) and technical (lights, sound, set, etc.) being announced at a casual Nominations Announcement party.

The nominees make up the final ballot, again voted by the nominating reps, after which they are tabulated again by an accounting firm. The results are sealed in envelopes for each category to be opened and revealed at a glamorous Gala Awards night where the winners in each category are presented with the coveted CTC Trophies.
