The 2016 Ben-Tony Awards


Here are the nominees for the coveted Ben-Tony Awards for the 2015-2016 season Royal Players. Of course, they are all very worthy (and so are many of their fellow actors who did not get nominated this time around). First, all directors and shows are nominated. The next list starts with non-musicals (leads, then supporting). If a name is repeated, that person was nominated in two categories. Musicals have the extra category of vocal performance. Special volunteer awards are not listed; neither are the ensemble nominations, choreographers or set and tech divisions (or Young Players). If you see a misspelled name, let me know quickly please.

Everyone is invited to the Ceremony October 15, 7 p.m., at the Royal. Admission is free, concession is open, and there will be entertainment.
Shows and directors: “Love from a Stranger”—Frank O. Butler; “White Christmas”-S. Christopher Boggs; “Cheaper by the Dozen” – Lisa Goodrich; “Shrek” – Mark A. Burbank; “Camelot” – D. Brent Miller; “You Can’t Take It with You” – Frank O. Butler.

Our sponsors for the season were Middlebrooks Electric, The Jeff Mattingly Foundation/First Security Bank, Roberson and Associates Insurance, Everett Buick GMC, W.W. and Anne Jones Charitable Trust, and Regions Bank. (They don’t get a trophy, but please remember them.)

Drew Ellis, Jeremy Clay, Brian Roberson, Tim Sopel, Harold Dean; Hillary Bell, Destiny Marchese, Hannah Hill; Duane Jackson, Tim Sopel, Mason Newberry, Jim Troillett, Hunter Strom, Keith Harper, Randall Earnest; Emily Kincaid, Tracy Courage, Donna Johnston, Meredith Medford, Hillary Bell, Jaketa McClure; Jeremy Clay, Tony Clay, D. Brent Miller, Shawn O’Brien, Harold Dean; Jordan Burnett Mays, Moriah Patterson, Hannah M. Sawyer, Ashley Couch; Randall Earnest, Payton Justice, Josh Strickland, Kevin Crumpler; Ersella Hughes, Cheryl Troillett, Megan Bowers; Jeremy Clay, D. Brent Miller, Josh Strickland, Kevin Crumpler, Harold Dean; Jordan Burnett Mays, Moriah Patterson, Rachael Brown, Hannah M. Sawyer, Ashley Couch.

This year we are going to have “Outstanding Performance by a Youth in a Royal Players Production.” I have no idea how much of that will fit on a little gold label or what we will do about it. Nominees are Jack Clay, Isabella Nguyen, Brooklyn Courtney-Moore.
