Committee Notes:

Everyone brought their A-game to this one. The playwrights delivered funny, poignant, and wildly creative 10-minute plays, and the actors brought them to life with the alchemy that occurs when great words meet great interpreters. Of special note, Alex took home the Best Actor prize for his sweet and shy portrayal of the Cowardly Lion. It was his first time on the CBC stage. Nicely done, sir.

One more slot left for King of Crows V and the Brawl For It All will commence on Wednesday, December 7th. Jody “The Iceman” McColman is your host and his chosen theme is “No”

We’ll see you soon. Get busy on them scripts.
