2014 Teen Honour in the Arts Award Recipient
Once you see Antony Knight on stage, you know he was born to be there. But according to Bumbershoot Theatre’s artistic director Tracy Ross, it’s the way he handles himself off stage that makes him even more of a joy to work with and a great role model for other young performers. He’s the youth representative on Bumbershoot’s board of directors and his ideas are often used when choosing youth programming and projects.
As a classically trained singer, Antony has won several regional and provincial vocal competitions and was chosen to sing at the 2013 Kiwanis Gala concert. He’s sung in numerous Opera Kelowna performances, including Parks Alive! and with Okanagan Symphony Orchestra.
His resume lists more than 20 different musical productions and plays at Bumbershoot, Kelowna Actors Studio and Theatre Kelowna.
As a multi-instrument musician, Antony formed a band called Tell the Girls. He created a new programme at Bumbershoot called Doorstep Sound that offers local musicians an all ages venue to play.
Coming up this season, Antony will perform in You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown and The Giver. He hopes to pursue a career in the arts.
