Duncan Little Theatre will be hosting the 1st Limelight Awards, Saturday, August 18th at 7:00 pm. The event will take place at the SimmonsCenter. The awards event will highlight our 2006-2007 season with some of the songs and scenes of last year.
If you came to productions last season, come relive a sample of the best moments and vote for our outstanding performers and shows. If you missed our productions, come see some of what we offer and what you can look forward to in the season to come.
DLT’s 2006-07 season saw many veteran performers return, but also saw many first time participants. We strive to bring in new participants as well as new audience members. Last season was quite successful, not only in presenting quality productions, but in introducing theatre to many who had not previously participated, both performers and audience.
Last season’s productions included Teen Theatre’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, “An Evening of Shorts”, “Cheaper by the Dozen”, “The Curse of the Hopeless Diamond” and “Bye Bye, Birdie”.
Nominees were selected by a committee made up of DLT Board Members. For all the chorus members from Bye Bye, Birdie, there will be “fishbowl” voting. Each chorus member will have a fishbowl for donations. The chorus member with the most money at the end of the “voting” period will win.
The Limelight Awards is a way to acknowledge all the hard work and many hours put into our productions by our volunteer performers and crew. It is also a way for you, the public to get to know your neighbors who make up the local theatre group. We would not only like to acknowledge those who participated in our productions, we would like to get more people involved. One of our goals is to acquaint larger numbers of the community to theatre and make everyone feel comfortable about getting involved. The people who work with DLT are all ages and occupations; there is a place for everyone in the theatre.
Entertainment will be provided by some of last season’s cast members. Hors d’oeuvres will be provided and a cash bar (wine and beer) will be available.
DLT’s 2007-2008 season will start with Teen Theatre’s production of “Charlotte’s Web”, Saturday, July 28th at 2:00. This season also includes Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma” in September; “Uh-Oh, Here Comes Christmas” in December; “An Evening of Shorts” in February; and concludes with “On Golden Pond” in April. More information about our 2007-2008 season will be available and season tickets will be on sale during the evening.
