CCT held it's annual awards dinner on Friday, May 15th. There were many fine performances turned in this season in all of our productions and the judges decision reflected that fact, with all of the productions receiving at least one if not multiple awards from the various categories.
The big prize of the night was brought home by LaWanda Scholl, who directed "The Odd Couple, Female Version", which took home the Best Play Award.
The award for Best Actor and Actress both came from "Gifts of the Magi", a musical directed by Ellen Friesen, with Royce Milgram and Adelaide Simmons receiving the prestigious honors.
The Best Supporting Actor and Actress awards went to a couple of CCT veteran performers. Lori Elyasevich brought home the honor for "Crimes of the Heart" directed by Matt Fletcher, while Casey Gadbury won for "Gifts of the Magi".
Reagan Van Soest delivered yet another memorable performance in "1918" directed by Phil Tozier and was honored with the Best Minor Female Character award.
The Best Minor Male Character award went to Michael Morriss for his performance as Doc Porter in "Crimes of the Heart".
Quite a few new faces appeared on the CCT stage this season. CCT honored a couple of these new faces with our Best Newcomer Award. Ruthie Bernin was our best female newcomer for "The Odd Couple, Female Version" with the male honors going to Wesley Green for "Crimes of the Heart".
The Best Set award went to "Crimes of the Heart".
Three very special individual awards were handed out for outstanding service to CCT.
The Board of Directors Award was presented to Marie Wilburn and Paul and Pam Cox.
