More Awards For Vigilante

on Thursday, 14 December 2017.

For Immediate Release

Internationally acclaimed CATALYST THEATRE, resident company in The Citadel’s Maclab Theatre, received the CAPITAL CRITICS AWARD FOR BEST PRODUCTION in Ottawa on Monday evening for its production of VIGILANTE.

VIGILANTE, which premiered at THE CITADEL THEATRE during the 14/15 season, is a riveting rock musical that tells the shocking story of Johannah Donnelly and her six dangerous yet devoted sons. Written, composed and directed by Catalyst’s Artistic Director Jonathan Christenson, VIGILANTE ran at the NATIONAL ARTS CENTRE in the 897-seat Babs Asper theatre in April.

Jan Alexandra Smith, who plays the fierce Donnelly matriarch, also received the Capital Critics Award for Outstanding Performance by a Leading Actress. The National Arts Centre engagement of Vigilante was the final stop of a three-city tour that included a sold-out run at the 900-seat GRAND THEATRE in London, ON, and at PERSEPHONE THEATRE in Saskatoon, where it was nominated for 11 SATAwards, winning for Best Production, Best Performance in a Leading Role (Jan Alexandra Smith) and Best Set Design (Jonathan Christenson).

Upcoming from Catalyst at The Citadel Theatre is their presentation of the hit new musical ONEGIN, that’s been taking the country by storm. The Vancouver Arts Club production runs in the MACLAB THEATRE from January 17-28.
