KWLT is incredibly proud of the cast and crew of Poona for a hugely successful run. We entered Poona for Out of Festival adjudication, which means that the travelling adjudicator saw and assessed the show, but we did not submit this year's show for consideration to enter the Festival in March.
Now, in the wake of the Western Ontario Drama League general meeting, we want to congratulate them for such a fantastic showing at the awards presentation.
The Travelling Adjudicator, Sandy Macdonald, made the following awards:
- Heather MacDonald as Shrub won The London Community Players Award for Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role
- Rob LeGood won a Special Adjudicator’s Award for Outstanding Achievements in Slides/Video/Sound and Lighting Effects
Poona was also showered with an abundance of nominations:
- Krystle Komaranski as Poona was nominated for The Audrey Vale Award - Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Major Role
- Bill Kirby as the Man Who Can Sell Anything was nominated for The Repuski Award - Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role
- Greg Allen as Prince/Computer was nominated for the Special Adjudicator Award for Outstanding Achievement in Multiple Roles
- Anabel LeGood as Cop/Devil/Intercom Voice/Kid/ Sparky/Stagehand 2/Telegram was nominated for the Special Adjudicator Award for Outstanding Achievement in Multiple Roles

Congratulations to all of the nominees and award winners, and to the entire cast and crew of Poona for putting on such a great show!
