On Sunday, CultureWest named Shelly Bordas Colorado’s 2013 Theatre Person of the Year. Here is the third and latest installment in veteran journalist John Moore’s ongoing video documentary series chronicling Bordas’ story since the Denver actor and mother was diagnosed – for a second time – with end-stage breast cancer that has now spread to her brain and eyes.
In Part 3, the theater community learns of Bordas’ dying wish to take her son on a Disney cruise — and makes it happen. Performers and interview subjects include Kevin Lowry, Jesse Greaves-Smith, Adrian Holguin, Mitch Samu, Colin Hearn, Thaddeus Valdez, Susan Lyles, Megan Van De Hey, Sarah Rex, Sarah Roshan, Rob Costigan, Jake Walker, Diana Dresser, Allison Watrous, Emily MacIntyre and more.
