With categories including ‘Outstanding Community Production – Large Theatre’ and ‘Outstanding New Work’, every size and scope of musical theatre production in the Lower Mainland has a chance to be nominated and even, awarded. The best part of these awards is that they don’t just recognize seasoned performers, they also spotlight newcomers to the musical theatre scene.

Numbers from the following shows will be featured at this year’s Ovation Awards: A Christmas Story, Dogfight, Hairspray, Into the Woods, In The Heights, Love Bomb, Oklahoma, Murder Ballad, My Fair Lady, Your A Good Man Charlie Brown and many more productions from 2015.
