Three CAT Nominations for Chev Students
The Performing Arts faculty at Chev is celebrating its latest successes with nominations for CAT Awards in the 2014 School Productions category for ‘The School for Wives’. This hilarious production directed by Kate Price gained three nominations – Jacob Sgouros as ‘Horace’ for Best Youth Actor in a Featured Role; Sophie McGregor as ‘the Old Woman’ for Best Youth Actress in a Featured Role; and Lachlan Norton for Best Youth Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of ‘Arnolphe’.
The Canberra Area Theatre Awards (CAT Awards) have been part of the theatre, dance and musical scene in Canberra and the surrounding districts since 1994 and provide recognition for the enormous contribution made by non-professional groups to the artistic life of Australia, in particular in Canberra and the region, and they encourage individuals in the performing arts.
The gala awards night to be held on Saturday 21 February in Canberra will be a big occasion for Sophie, Jacob and the other cast and production members. If Lachlan wins, however, his award will have to be accepted on his behalf as he’ll be in England on a gap year placement with Lattitude. We are very proud of each of these students and wish them and their teachers the best of luck for the final awards.
The College is also delighted to learn that Ari Sgouros (Chevalier Class of 2010, and Jacob’s older sister) has been accepted into NIDA for 2015. We wish Ari every success as she continues to follow and realise her dreams. Read more… Editorial comment – Southern Highland News 17/12/14
