Our entry “Supermarket Sisterhood” received a “Special Moment” award for the characters of Susan and Sharon. We were also co-winners with Wellington Repertory Theatre of the best poster award. We presented the Sven scene at the awards which was well received. Many thanks to the committee and members who worked so hard to make the evening a success.
