This year we had 3 special awards along with our regular awards. Each cast voted on actors in their show who went above and beyond their responsibilities. Actors who made a difference in morale, were helpful or whatever the case may be. They has to give a reason for their vote - it couldn't just be a popularity thing. It had to be thought out. There were many, many actors mentioned - which was awesome to see! We chose 3 of the names to honor last night. They represent what AYT is all about.
Parker Ellsworth - He is nice, and always helped get actors pumped up for Beauty and the Beast. The word used most to describe him is “friendly”.
Hannah Mason - During A Little Princess rehearsals and performances she would make everyone smile and always thought about other people’s feelings. “Kind” is the word used most to describe her.
Rachel Spencer - She is always friendly and helpful – with whatever is needed. The cast of Camelot said her smile lights up the room and she always talks to everyone. The word used most to describe her is “positive”.
Congratulations to these 3 actors as well as all of the actors listed below! We are so proud of all of you for your hard work and dedication this season. And for being the amazing people you are! Thank you for sharing your talent with us!
