About the Dora Mavor Moore Awards:
Named for Dora Mavor Moore and presented by TAPA, were founded on December 13, 1978 by a committee convened by Millie Drain. On that date Drain and the other founders (Ann Antkiw, Ronald Bryden, Bill Glassco, Graham Harley, Leon Major, Sean Mulcahy, Peter Peroff, Heinar Piller, Susan Rubes, Pat Stewart and Sylvia Tucker), decided to institute an award to recognize outstanding achievements in Toronto theatre.
Today the Doras honour the creators of approximately 200 theatre, dance and opera productions annually in 50 categories over 7 Divisions: General Theatre, Independent Theatre, Musical Theatre, Theatre for Young Audiences, Dance, Opera and Touring. The awards in each division are voted on by a jury of eight to twelve individuals drawn from the professional performing arts community. The original Dora Awards statuette was designed by sculptor John Romano.
