Since retiring as a music educator, Gloria Herauf has seen her dream became reality with the formation of Yorkton Community Theatre and its first production of "Oklahoma!" in 2000.  Since then Gloria, along with an army of happy volunteers and talented performers, has directed and produced "Hello Dolly!", "Crazy For You", "Music Man" and "My Fair Lady, "Annie Get Your Gun" and "Fiddler on the Roof".  In her former life of teaching and coordinating classroom music, Gloria also conducted workshops for teachers, directed countless children's musicals & performing groups, as well as recording and producing CDs for classroom teachers. In 1993, Gloria was awarded the Governor General's Canada 125 Medal; in 1999, she received the Prime Minister's Award for Teaching Excellence and in 2001, she received the Saskatchewan Music Educators Association Honorary Life Membership Award. In 2004, YCT received a Volunteer Award at the Chamber of Commerce Celebrate Success Business Awards Night.

Gloria and husband Les are a team, working together in all aspects of the show and she literally could not do it without his support and effort.  They currently reside on Vancouver Island.
