Performing arts programs win two ariZoni awards

Award-winning makeup and hair

Bird Girls Laura Loose (purple), 
Shelby Daeffler (orange) and 
Abbeney Davis (green). 

Chandler-Gilbert Community College’s performing arts program received two ariZoni Theatre Awards on Monday, Sept. 15. CGCC received 10 nominations for the annual awards program, eight for the spring 2014 musical Seussical and two for the spring 2014 theater production The Bold, The Young and The Murdered

Awards were presented to student Laura Loose for hair and makeup design in Seussical and CGCC Performing Arts Center Facilities Coordinator Ron Keller for property design for The Bold, the Young and the Murdered. The award ceremony also featured the Seussical cast performing "Oh the Things you can Think" from the show. 

"I’m grateful for the opportunity to share in the success of Seussical,” said Laura Loose, who earned her cosmetology license at Eastern Arizona Academy of Cosmetology while attending Eastern Arizona College. "Receiving this award is such an honor. It confirms to me that I can do what I love with cosmetology in combination with theatre and music. I thoroughly enjoyed coming up with costume and makeup ideas with Patti (Duggar) that were over-the-top and reflected the unique imagination of Dr. Seuss."

The Bold, the Young and the Murdered utilized
the stage for the set, props and actors, but cleverly
included the audience as part of the the soap opera
filming studio which placed every member of
the audience directly in the heart of the action on stage.
