Among the productions singled out for the honors include “Jekyll & Hyde,” “The Strange Attractor” and “Arabian Nights.” The awards will be presented at a banquet Sept. 29. A complete list of nominations can be found at www.matawards.com/awards-ceremony/nominees/.
“We excited beyond words about the recognition the MAT judges have given to Act3,” said Artistic Director Patti Mactas. “Two years ago, when we first submitted works to be judged, we won 11 awards, which was then a MAT record. Last year, we won 14. I think it’s safe to say we have a very good chance of breaking our own record. What’s most important, however, is that these prestigious awards shine the spotlight on our extremely talented actors and directors, as well as our behind-the-scenes stars who create costumes, sound, lighting, choreography, music and all the other components of our successful shows.”
Last year, Act3 Productions had the honor of being the first theater company to win top MAT awards for Best Musical, Best Play and Best Original Work in the same year.
