Beaverton Civic Theatre claims four awards at festival

The Beaverton Civic Theatre recently won four awards for its version of William Gibson’s “The Miracle Worker” at Oregon’s American Association of Community Theatre Festival in Forest Grove.

The theater group’s Hayley Rousselle, who portrayed Helen Keller, took home best actress and Doreen Lundberg won for best directing. The production also won best fight choreography and best lighting design.

The theater company now advances to the regional AACTFest in Richland, Wash., at the end of March to compete against community theater groups from Washington, Idaho and Alaska. The winning regional theater will advance to the national AACTFest in Carmel, Ind., this June.

“The Beaverton Civic Theatre is a very talented group of people, and winning these awards just proves what we’ve known all along,” said Mayor Denny Doyle. “Our community is very fortunate to have these gifted performers creating such high-quality productions.”

Beaverton Civic Theatre recently wrapped up its latest production, “Suite Surrender” by Michael McKeever.

The Beaverton Civic Theatre is a volunteer-based community theater that began in 2009. Its mission is to bring the community together on stage, behind the scenes and in the audience.
