There’s so much going on here at the Williamston Theatre!
We just won 4 awards from The Wilde Awards, which are the biggest Theatre Awards in Michigan. They’re sponsored and run by Between The Lines and Encore Michigan.
Our awards were:
Best Set – Talley’s Folly (Bart Bauer)
Best Sound – Talley’s Folly (John Lepard & Tony Caselli)
Best Actor in a Comedy – Alex Leydenfrost (Panache)
Best Comedy – Panache
We’re pleased to receive the awards, and proud that the Williamston Theatre is being recognized with some of the other fine theatres in the state! Congrats to all the nominees and winners from the Wilde Awards!
In addition to awards, we’re renovating parts of our building! Our entrance foyer will have a whole new look when folks come in next season, and we’re also adding more restrooms to the rear lobby!
One of the other exciting renovations to the building is the expansion of the air-conditioning in the theatre: we’ll have better a/c in the theatre itself, as well as more control over what happens in the front lobby!
(And, on a more production-oriented note, we’re getting a door put into the back wall of the booth which will allow for one more actor entrance. Many more staging options for directors now!)
And, lastly, we’re deep in prep for next season! (Which, technically, is THIS season since it’s September 1st!) Schedules, budgets, staff, it’s all coming together.
Next week we start rehearsal for AN INFINITE ACHE, which is going to be just beautiful.
See you at the theatre!Share
