July 15th 2019.
We are proud to announce during the 37th Annual Jessie Richardson Awards, Alannah Ong won a Jessie for Best Supporting Actress in a Small Theatre for her role in The Ones We Leave Behind by Loretta Seto. It is a well-deserved win! She brought humor and pathos to her character that was beloved by audiences and critics alike. This is her second nomination and first win with VACT; her first nomination was for her role in Ga Ting by Minh Ly.
We also wanted to give a shoutout to Heather Redfern and the Cultch for receiving the Vancouver Now Representation and Inclusion Award. We couldn’t think of a more deserving recipient!
Finally, we want to congratulate everyone who was nominated in our vAct family. You are all still winners in our hearts!
