The Gregory Awards have named Christine Tschirgi, as one of five 2018 nominee's for Costume Design in the production of King of the Yees performed at the ACT Theatre. The Gregory Awards are recognized as the most significant theatre awards in the northwestern United States. Below is the Gregory Awards nominator's quote on Chris' costume design:

"The costumes ran the whole spectrum of costumes from perfectly understated modern wear to the fabulously flamboyant garb of the Model Ancestor. They were all spot on, from how perfectly Lauren's outfit underlined her white-ish, yuppie departure from her past to the Model Ancestor's truly stunning shoes." - Gregory Awards Nominator

  • Pete Rush, The Government Inspector, Seattle Shakespeare Company
