“FINDING YOUR LIGHT" - Jeffrey Scott Technical Award
Jeffrey Scott was a founding member and Technical Director of Wild Horse Children’s Theater and instrumental in bringing the “magic” to our productions. Jeffrey’s love and passion for theater was evident in his work and he inspired and served as a mentor to many of our backstage crew who had the opportunity to know and work with him.
We honor Jeffrey’s memory with the “Finding Your Light” award to applaud a crew member who has made an outstanding contribution and effort to a production by demonstrating positive attitude, teamwork, professionalism, enthusiasm, hard work and commitment to excellence behind-the-scenes.
