“The Abbott Awards”, Cranbrook’s newest annual awards event, coincides with Cranbrook Community Theatre’s season launch. Created by CCT Director, Trevor Lundy, and respectfully named after CCT founder, Bud Abbott (1921 – 2019), this exceptional formal gala event celebrates the very best of those involved in Community Theatres in Cranbrook and area.


The purpose of the Abbott Awards is to engage CCT membership in a meaningful way, to encourage membership growth, to promote the performing arts in our community, and to celebrate and recognize the efforts of our production teams and volunteers.

The stellar event announces the coming season of productions, includes a silent auction fundraiser, and features the awarding of trophies, or “Buddies”, voted on by the CCT membership in these categories:

      Favourite  Production            Favourite Director          Favourite Poster                                     Favourite Set Design      

      Favourite Actor                       Favourite Actress           Favourite Supporting Actress               Favourite Supporting Actor

      Favourite Newcomer             Favourite Costumes       Volunteer of the Year                            Lifetime Achievement

​CCT members with active email addresses on file will be invited to vote by online survey. CCT members who do not use email can request a printed ballot be mailed to them by phoning the CCT office 250-426-2490.

As a volunteer non-profit organization, CCT also bestows an award for ‘Volunteer of the Year’, by a vote of the CCT Board of Directors, to celebrate the efforts and dedication of those who work diligently and passionately behind the scenes and who are invaluable in ensuring the sustainability of the very best in community theatre through CCT.
