Bravo Award2020As you would know, TASA decided to cancel the 2020 Cal Awards due to there being a very small number of productions last year. The decision was made to consider those shows, along with the productions from 2021, in a combined 2020/21 Awards Night early next year. However, this was not the case with the Bravo Award, which we decided to award for 2020. Last month, a small, informal dinner was held where the award was presented to Robert Kimber. Since first setting foot on stage as a court jester in 1947, Robert (Bob) Kimber has dedicated his life to the arts and continues to do so today. His particular enthusiasm for arts education has influenced and guided many theatre makers over many years. Bob has taught Speech and Drama at several colleges and universities, directed plays for many Adelaide theatre companies, written plays for children, written 3 novels in the last 10 years, and too much more to include here. Bravo, Bob!
