AUDIENCE CHOICE – The Awards Show
No. We didn’t hold a real awards show without you.
But we are immensely grateful to all of you for telling us who your favorite actors and productions were for last season. Frankly, we were overwelmed by the response. More than 1500 votes cast! Wow.
We wanted to find a way to thank you for taking part, and what better way, we thought, than to put on a show for you. An Awards Show, of course, that takes place in your imagination. The kind which we very much doubt you will ever see.
James Konicek, actor and member of SoundIncentive, agreed to play the part of our Host. Debbie Jackson, Joel Markowitz, Tim Treanor and myself were the presenters. As soon as the polls closed, we were on the phones to the winners,, all of whom agreed to call in their acceptance speeches. And if you ever wondered whether your applause and support for our actors mattered, listen to what they say.
So here is our first Radio Theatre production. Tune is as we announce your choices and we hear from the winners and one nominee who, well, let’s just say he didn’t win. Listen here.
Enjoy the show, and thanks, as always, for supporting Washington area theatre.
