2009-2010 Critic's Choice Award Nominations

I was lucky enough to belong to three shows over the past season (2009-2010), and in some capacity, each was nominated for a Spokie award! It's a local Critic's Choice award, and just kind wonderful that someone thinks through all of the amazing theatre that happens in Spokane and publishes their rankings (and even more wonderful that someone in Spokane attends everything theatre). I know a TON of the people mentioned in the column, and it feels akin to someone on the street saying, "hey! I remember you! You were in..."! It's just FUN! And taking just a second to look back and feel proud about the productions and ensembles that I was blessed to contribute to last season feels pretty good ;)

Congrats to my fellow ensemble members on individual noms!!!

Doubt (Interplayers, fall 2009)
Aaron Murphy as Father Flynn for Leading Actor, Play
Ann Russell Whiteman as Sister Aloysius for Leading Actress, Play
Roger Welch for Direction of a Play
Best Ensemble (excited about this one!)
Best Drama (even more pleased for this nom! EDIT: We snagged this one! Woo HOO!)

(EDIT: I just realized in the Doubt photos below...I have the same exact expression! Got to say, I was terrified of our Sister Aloysius!)

Steel Magnolias (Spokane Civic Theatre, winter 2009-2010)
Wendy Carroll as Clairee for Featured Actress, Play
Kathie Doyle-Lipe as Ouiser for Featured Actress, Play
Bethany D. Hart as Shelby for Leading Actress, Play (cool!)

Psychopathia Sexualis (Interplayers, spring 2010)
Dan Anderson as Arthur for Leading Actor, Play
Caryn Hoaglund-Trevett as Lucille for Leading Actress, Play
Best Comedy (stiff competition; but admittedly hard not to be biased!)

(I hope Don McLaughlin at EWU wins set design for The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie...EWU puts on some amazing productions, and Brodie was no exception. They're not mentioned enough; likely due to the fact that they are a collegiate theatre...but still.)
