Theatre Ancaster's Angela and Jim Broadley receive prestigious John Nielsen Award

“Angela and Jim Broadley are a fantastic team. They are welcoming and positive as well as being dedicated and talented. They wear many hats behind the scenes with Theatre Ancaster and engage cast and production teams alike with their infectious passion for theatre to make it a wonderful collaborative experience for everyone.”

These are just some of the words used by Michelle Chin when she nominated Angela and Jim Broadley as a team for Theatre Ancaster’s celebrated John Nielsen Award at the annual meeting and barbecue, attended by 75-100 members and supporters held recently at the home of Al and Krys Croxall.

Both Angela and Jim Broadley have appeared in lead roles with Theatre Ancaster for 20 years but it’s their work behind the scenes that has earned them this award, based on the esteemed support and admiration as production team leaders, from their peers.

Angela is a choreographer and director with Theatre Ancaster but she has also helped design sets as well as paint and decorate them. Angela was the creative directing dynamo behind Annie which now has the distinction of being Theatre Ancaster’s most successful show ever.

Jim directed the recent tremendously popular Legends: Gone Too Soon with Angela doing the choreography.

“They do whatever is needed to make a production a success,” added Chin. “Their prep work and energy and talent are boundless. Audiences are constantly amazed and so are we. They always get the job done and done well.”

That is what John Nielsen did as head carpenter and set builder extraordinaire for Theatre Ancaster for a decade before his death in 2003. The Nielsen Award honours his dedication, excellence and dependability. John also did more than build great sets for Theatre Ancaster by taking on a number of major creative building projects for the community. He restored the interior of the Ancaster Old Town Hall, as well as designing and building the gazebo out front. In addition, he headed the restoration work of the Tisdale House, Ancaster’s oldest heritage building.

Angela and Jim Broadley follow John Nielsen’s example of excellent service and go above and beyond what is needed.

Jim also serves on the Theatre Ancaster board of directors and helps with sponsorship work for Theatre Ancaster. He and Angela both are valued members of the creative committee which determines the shows that Theatre Ancaster produces each year. Angela also co-ordinated the Theatre Ancaster Gala that celebrated Theatre Ancaster’s 20th anniversary of service and commitment in this community.
