City production earns best director at WODL

Guelph Little Theatre’s production of The Curious Savage was nominated in several categories for yester­day’s out of festival Western Ontario Drama League awards and director Lloyd Lindsay took home the award for Best Director.

Lindsay’s previous produc­tion of Death of a Salesman also won awards at the festival two years ago.

The Curious Savage had nomination for Best Costume, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Best Ensemble and garnered a special adjudicator’s award for the notable perfor­mance of the three actors who played the misbehaving adult children of the main character, Ethel Savage.

The WODL consists of over 30 community theatre groups with a combined membership of over 900. Each group in the region has the opportunity to select a play from its season line-up which is judged by a professional adjudicator.

Guelph Little Theatre’s next production, Beyond a Joke, begins its three week run March 19. For tickets, call the Guelph Little Theatre box office at 519-821-0270. Tickets are $17.
