The Colony Theatre Company

is proud to present the 2005  Annual

 Community Spotlight Award


Barry Burnett

The Colony Theatre Company, in conjunction with the City of Burbank, is pleased to announce the success of the 2005 Community Spotlight Award! The award honors those who have helped to make Burbank such a special community, and this year, the city and the theatre honored Barry Burnett for his dedication to charitable organizations like the Salvation Army and Kiwanis, as well as his leadership in the Chamber of Commerce and as a beloved coach of local sports teams.

Mayor Jef Vander Borght remarked of Barry, "As great a physical loss as Barry has suffered, he still bubbles over with humor, genuine enthusiasm, and concern for his fellow human beings. He epitomizes the reality that each one of us can control our own happiness. We owe him a debt of gratitude for showing us the way." The event began at 6pm, with a delicious dinner catered by Pomodoro Cucina Italiana served prior to the ceremony. Gordon Biersch sponsored fresh draft beer for the evening. The ceremony featured an exciting program of theatrical entertainment including highlights from the Colony Theatre's upcoming production of the Jerry Herman musical comedy, THE GRAND TOUR! A coffee and dessert reception immediately followed the ceremony, with coffee provided by Starbucks.

We extend our sincerest gratitude to those who participated in this event, including our 2005 Community Spotlight Award Honorary Committee, our generous sponsors, and the wonderful staff, crew and volunteers who helped to make the evening such a rewarding experience.
