Now in its 26th year, the CAT Awards celebrate the best of community theatre in Canberra and southern New South Wales, providing recognition for the enormous contribution made by non-professional theatre, dance and musical groups and individuals to the artistic life of Australia, in particular in Canberra and the region.

We Will Rock You – cast and crew

Bringing this ambitious show to the stage in May 2019 was a labour of love for Director Kate Price, the production team and cast of some 80 actors, singers and dancers, as well as a live band of talented musicians, with full houses that had sold out well in advance. This was the first production to be staged in the new Chevalier College Performing Arts Centre and a major highlight of the school calendar.

We congratulate all the nominees and wish them luck for the upcoming Gala Awards Night when the winners will be announced. The gala is usually held annually in February but, due to the bushfire crisis, this year’s event has been postponed to Saturday 18th April 2020.

As well as announcing the winners, we’ll be presenting acts from some of the amazingly talented performers we’ve seen throughout the 2019 awards year.
