On a special night, with a live soundtrack provided by legendary acapella group The Nylons who came out of retirement for one last appearance, The Flato Markham Theatre handed out its annual Performing Arts Awards. The awards celebrate those that have contributed to the performing arts in Markham through their involvement with the theatre.
