This year’s  nominations  were  announced yesterday. CATS got 3 nominations Best Production  Musical Community, Best Actor ( Gary Evans) and Best Costune Design (Mary Selvoski, Mary Jo Smith and Laura Majore). There were quite a few people from CATS who I felt were snubbed.

Top 3 Predictions

( all are in community category.)

Best Production

Musical

CATS Amherst PTA

Crazy For You Actorsingers

Into The Woods Actorsingers

Best Director

The only show I saw in this Category was Crazy For You.  I was bummed I could not see All Shook Up because it  was  the same weekend as CATS, like wise with  Big Fish as it was the same weekend as Into The Woods. Congrats to all who were nominated from both those productions.

*All Shook Up Stagecoach Productions Judy Hayward

*Chicago Peacock Players Henry Kopsynski  III

Crazy For You Actorsingers  Judy Hayward

 Best Sound Design ( CATS was snubbed for this one… I am mostly biased as I was assistant sound designer)

*All Shook Up Stagecoach Productions,A Midsummer Night’s  Dream Peacock Players & *Chicago Peacock Players  Rich Loomer

A Midsummer Night’s Dream was nominated for best lighting. I did not see any other shows in this category so I cannot make accurate top 3 predictions.

Got any predictions ?  I am willing and ready to discuss what people thought of shows that were nominated and who you think will win. Congrats to all top 10 finalists. Looking forward to January 23rd.
