Sheatre’s Chandler To Receive Hartman Award


Joan Chandler’s work in educational alternative theatre — mostly in rural communities for small audiences — is in a different league, she said, from many of the works considered for the award she’ll accept in Brantford Saturday night.

So the Kemble-based artistic director of Sheatre was surprised to learn she was in the running and even more shocked when she was chosen for the first-ever Phil Hartman Arts and Humanitarian Award.

“I really feel quite astonished,” Chandler said Friday. “For someone who is working on a small scale doing community arts to be selected for such an honour is very humbling.”

The award is named for the Brantford-born actor who died in 1998. He was best known for his time during the late 1980s as part of the cast of Saturday Night Live.
