I was incredibly honored to win the Orlin Corey Medallion Award from the Children’s Theater Foundation which honors significant achievements for the enrichment of children in the United States and Canada through nurturing artistic work in theatre and the arts. The Children’s Theatre Foundation of America challenges and supports theatre artists to achieve excellence in service to young people.
This award honored my work as a playwright for young audiences, my work at the Omaha Theater Company, and the establishment and leadership with my Pride Players teen theater group. The list of previous honorees is a literal who’s who in the Theater for Young Audiences field. I am humbled to be put in the same category as these incredible leaders.
