Theatre Charleston announces 2014 award nominations

  • Sunday, August 10, 2014

Theatre Charleston is thrilled to announce the nominees for the second annual Theatre Charleston Awards. The first of their kind, these awards were created to recognize excellence in theatrical performance, production and design as well as strive to promote live theatre and increase awareness of the richness of the local performing arts community in the Charleston area. Award winners will be announced at the Theatre Charleston Awards Gala, Sunday, Aug. 31 at the Charleston Music Hall.

Throughout the 2013-2014 theatre season, carefully selected voters from the Charleston area evaluated performance, production and design. The nominees below, listed alphabetically, have received the top-five scores in their category.

New to the awards this season are five added “People’s Choice” categories. These fun categories are nominated by individual members (Theatre Charleston has more than 200 artist members). All awards gala attendees will have an opportunity to vote on the People’s Choice Awards.

Tickets to attend the awards gala are currently on sale at www.theatrecharleston.com. This formal event will feature a red carpet, silent auction, People’s Choice voting, heavy hors d’oeuvres, open bar with our specialty cocktail, live entertainment from some of Charleston’s favorite actors and much more. A chance to celebrate the excellent theatre produced in the Lowcountry, the Theatre Charleston Awards Gala will certainly be a night to remember.
