Shiner Gaslight Theatre announces awards
The Shiner Gaslight Theatre has announced the following award winners who were elected by the cast and crew of "On Golden Pond."
Mars Bucek was given the Sister Michelle award for her job as director, and Kim Black received the Backstage Award for her work as set decorator, assistant director and stage crew member.
This was Bucek's debut as a director. Previously, she played Queenie Dramameeny in "Murder at the Bingo Hall" and worked in various support positions in other Gaslight plays. "I am privileged to be allowed to play at the Gaslight; I cannot call it 'work' because it gives me such joy to collaborate with a tremendous cadre of talented actors and directors and all the dedicated volunteers who give our area such a productive theater. Woo hoo!" she said.
First-time volunteer, Kim Black, lives in Taylor but will enjoy the opportunity to continue her theatre involvement as she and her husband, Matt, both retirees from Texas Workforce Commission in Austin, are planning to relocate to Yoakum.
