In 2018 we created the Patrice Barnes Legacy Award, in honour of our very first recipient, Patrice Barnes. Patrice was a driving force and the spirit behind so many of the artists that graced the StoryBook stage in her 25 years history with the organization.
The Patrice Barnes Legacy Award is given to an individual who has left a lasting impact on the StoryBook Theatre community through their dedication and support.
Kathy Bauer has been a StoryBook volunteer for close to two decades. Starting when her oldest son decided to audition for Aladdin, Kathy has been a staple behind the scenes with the organization. She has been a member of the Board of Directors, in roles as President, Past President and Treasurer. She is regularly the first person to volunteer for whatever StoryBook has going on. She is the epitome of volunteerism and without question has left a lasting mark on StoryBook.
