PAMTA Honors the Best of 2017 Portland Theatre

PAMTA Honors the Best of 2017 Portland Theatre

The Portland Area Musical Theatre Awards have announced this year's winners! See the full list below.

The PAMTA Awards recognize outstanding achievements in the performance of musical theatre in Portland and the surrounding area.

The 15 voting members are anonymous, even to one another. This way members cannot be influenced by performers, designers, theatre companies or even each other. Opinions cannot be swayed at meetings because there are none. Voting is done by secret ballot. All members see all productions to the degree that is humanly possible. No member of the committee is active in the theatre community.

Committee members must be at least 18 years of age and possess an unbridled enthusiasm for the musical theatre. Candidates are offered positions on the committee if they are judged to be observant, knowledgable, passionate and above all, unbiased.

Original handmade trophies are presented at the Delores Winningstad Theatre in the Portland Center for the Performing Arts each year in June.
