As some of you may know, our own MARIE CALDWELL was the winner of The Platinum Palm Award at the Gold Coast Theatre Awards on Tuesday 16th December at the Gold Coast Arts Centre
Kate PETERS (Convenor and announcer of the award) praised Marie for her commitment to being Ballina Players Pianist for 41 years. In her emotional speech, Marie said that Ballina Players was her family.
Sharing the award with Marie was a lady from Spotlight who has worked Front Of House for many years.
Unsuccessful on the night were Mary Richards (Director, Cash On Delivery), Geoff Marsh (Lighting..SUPA North, Downtown) and Mike.Sheehan (Leading Actor, Cash On Delivery)
Marie was surprised totally, even when Kate started talking about a company outside the Gold Coast region, being a long-term rehearsal pianist, playing musicals for 41 years, and only became aware when Kate mentioned Ballina Players!
Congratulations to a wonderful woman, a Life Member, and a great friend to all Ballina Players members.
If you would like to see video of Marie at the awards, click the following links to YouTube.
In the first, Marie has no idea that she is to receive the award, and is totally surprised.
In this 2nd video, Marie accepts the award and makes a speech.
