The Chronicle

Pella — Pat Van Zante won the Iowa Community Theatre Association's award for outstanding costuming for her work in Union Street Players' production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." Van Zante is a veteran of the local stage and has been credited in numerous production roles over the years. She costumed and was nominated for two of USP's three productions in 2012 ("Night of January 16th" and "Joseph..."). USP's production of the popular musical had been a finalist for five different ICTA awards which were announced and presented at the group's annual festival in Newton this past Saturday night. Van Zante was the only local nominee to win an award at this year's festival. USP's next production will be the Broadway musical "Bye Bye Birdie" scheduled this summer.
