The Canberra Area Theatre Awards (CAT Awards) have been part of the theatre, dance and musical scene in Canberra and the surrounding districts since 1994. They provide recognition for the enormous contribution made by non-professional groups to the artistic life of Australia, in particular in Canberra and the region, and they encourage individuals in the performing arts.
The CAT family is mourning the passing of Jon English. Words cannot describe how much we loved and appreciated everything he did for the CAT Awards, as well as his friendship and loyalty to everyone he touched in both his theatrical career and personally. Thank you Jon for all the support you have given everyone, we all love you dearly.
