Local theater shows it belongs in the big time

The Candlelight Pavilion may be modest in size, but the beloved Claremont playhouse is proving it’s more than just a small-town dinner theater. The local theater won 6 Broadway World Los Angeles Awards earlier this month including Best Musical (Local Production) for its recent production of Miss Saigon. “Pantages, Candlelight on Top!” headlined the awards announcement, recognizing the local theater, which swept categories alongside the renowned Hollywood theater. Though the Candlelight team insists they are not in it for the awards or the fanfare, the recent recognition is a welcome validation of years of hard work and passion. “This is my heart, this is my life. The award is a bonus,” said Mindy Teuber, the Candlelight’s assistant producer.
