And The Cayle Chernin Award

Cayle Chernin
The Cayle Chernin Memorial Fund was created to honour the nurturing spirit of the late Cayle Chernin. The fund will award an annual cash prize to an emerging female artist in the performing arts, alternating yearly between theatre and film/digital media. Cayle was an active and inspirational member of the Board of Directors of Equity Showcase Theatre from 2008 until her passing in 2011.
