Make believe

“A lot of it is Casey Nicholaw, our director, who was very objective and was able to really see that,” she said. “Because probably if it was up to me I’d be like, ‘We can make this work!’ ” Teamwork was made easier by the fact that she and Martin and McKellar were high school classmates and subsequently had plenty of practice working together, founding a children’s theater company for which she wrote songs. She and Martin had a sketch comedy group through the ’90s, called Skippy’s Rangers, which also did comic songs.

Her co-winner for music and lyrics, Greg Morrison, has also been an easy co-worker.

“With Greg and me, I am more lyrics and he’s more music, but we are really in each other’s territory a lot,” she said. “Usually what happens is, I will come up with a very rough song that has a rough lyric and a kind of a tune and a melody, and we take it from there.”

Lambert is grateful to have had such compatible collaborators.

“I was really lucky because it was fantastic — and you hear stories of that not being the case,” she said.
