The NH Theater Awards celebrated another successful season of Youth, Community and Professional theater across the state with their yearly awards ceremony.
This year marked a change in venue, having been moved from the Palace Theatre in Manchester to the Stockbridge Theatre on the campus of the Pinkerton Academy in Derry. According to Mia Moravis, Press Coordinator for the NHTA, "...the awards ceremony went very well very few hitches, Scott H. Severance's writing and directing were spot on. The show was technically sound and vivacious. The original content was hilarious, the performances were impeccable, well-honed with great talent. The change of venue was very smooth sailing."
The New London Barn Playhouse turned out to be the big winner of the evening, taking home Best Production, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Musical Director, Best Choreographer and Best Scenic Designer categories under the musical banner.
The Peterborough Players also made a great showing by earning awards for their productions of Auld Lang Syne and The 39 Steps. Best Production, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Sound Designer were presented to them in the play category.
