Players' Theatre Prepares for Irving Awards

It’s Irving Awards time for Eunice Players’ Theatre! Ballots and invitations have been mailed and the Board of Directors is busily preparing for the 42nd annual ceremony that recognizes and celebrates the achievements of the previous season. 

The theatre staged four shows last year, including “Barefoot in the Park”, “Completely Hollywood (abridged)”, “A Nice Family Gathering”, and the summer musical, “Schoolhouse Rock Live!”. Those who participated in the directing, acting, and technical aspects of those shows have been nominated for corresponding awards, to be voted upon by the season ticket holders. Winners will be announced Academy-Awards style at the ceremony to be held February 11 at the Northwest Community Center.

“A Walk Down Broadway” is this year’s theme, and those attending the ceremony will be treated to an opening dance number by students from Oliva Dodd’s Studio of Dance, and a Broadway musical medley by members of the theatre.

All season ticket holders should have received a ballot and anyone who worked on any of the shows last season should have received an invitation to attend the celebration. Anyone not receiving theirs yet should contact David at 546-0136 or Debi at 457-2156.

Season tickets for the 43rd season go on sale the night of the Irving Awards and can be purchased from any board member in the following weeks. The season opener will be presented in mid-April. For more information about the season, follow the theatre on this or on its Facebook page.
