Penny and Reiner Silberhorn honoured with Studio Theatre's Parry Award.
One year ago, Perth's Studio Theatre inaugurated the Parry Award, a special tribute created to honour long-time theatre volunteers David and Patricia Parry. The award is given annually to a Studio Theatre volunteer who has made an exceptional gift of their time, talent, or monetary support.
At the Annual General Meeting on June 25th, Penny and Reiner Silberhorn were presented with the 2019 Studio Theatre Parry Award, in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the work of Perth's community theatre.
Penny Silberhorn has been the Studio Theatre's president for more than ten years, and is also active on its Promotions Committee, and as a stage manager and set dresser. Her husband Reiner -- nursing a badly broken leg suffered while working in the theatre -- designs and builds virtually every stage set, and is a constant presence as the theatre's building manager, lead builder, and renovator. Together, Penny and Reiner Silberhorn have donated thousands of hours of their time to the Studio Theatre, contributing enormously to its success. A heartfelt Congratulations goes to this irreplaceable husband and wife team, from their many theatre friends and colleagues.
