On This Week: Conclusion of First Ever Penguin Play Awards

BLIZZARD, Shamrock Bulletin Headquarters – In the first edition of your newest Saturday column: On This Week, we take a trip back to 2009 which saw the conclusion of Club Penguin’s first Penguin Play Awards.

The Penguin Play Awards has occurred twice on Club Penguin Rewritten but was first spotted in its two visits to Club Penguin. On this week in 2009, the first ever Penguin Play Awards concluded.

The event, which saw members have access to the “Backstage” room, saw the first ever appearance of Aunt Arctic as an in-game, meetable mascot. Players also had the opportunity to meet Cadence, Gary and The Penguin Band.

As those who have experienced any iteration of this party will remember, the main feature of the event is the ability for players to vote for different stage plays in a number of categories.

Penguins voted for plays in the following five categories:

  • Best Overall Play
  • Best Sound/Music
  • Best Effects
  • Best Costume
  • Best Set

The set of nominated plays, decided by the “Stage Society”, were nominated for all five awards and are listed below:

  • Ruby and The Ruby
  • Quest for the Golden Puffle
  • Squidzoid vs. Shadow Guy and Gamma Gal
  • The Penguins That Time Forgot
  • Fairy Fables

The party went on to return for its last appearance a year later, in 2010. Since then, as mentioned above, the party has visited the Club Penguin Rewritten island in 2018 and 2020.
