And now, the Gregory Award winners

From Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson:

Theatre Puget Sound’s annual Gregory Awards for Seattle theater achievements were bestowed on Monday night, at a gala ceremony held at the Neptune Theatre. Voted by members of the local theater association Theatre Puget Sound, the Gregorys are awarded to both individuals and companies in more than a dozen categories.  Balagan Theatre led the pack this year as the recipient of five awards.

The prize for outstanding drama production in the 2012-13 theater season went to “August: Osage County,” produced by Balagan Theatre, with Shawn Belyea claiming the top directing prize. Village Theatre’s “Chicago” was named outstanding musical production, and  “Undo” by Seattle writer Holly Arsenault took the outstanding new play Gregory. Lead actor prizes for drama went to  G. Valmont Thomas (“Master Harold and the Boys”) Shellie Shulkin (“August: Osage County”). Lead actors in a musical:  Jerick Hoffer (“Hedwig and the Angry Inch”), and Patti Cohenour (“Grey Gardens”).

Capitol Hill’s Annex Theatre was named theater of the year.  And Laura Campbell, marketing manager of Centerstage in Federal Way, received the Melissa Hines Award for outstanding theater practitioner. The Gregory Awards are named in honor of Gregory A. Falls (1922-1997), a former chair of the UW School of Drama, who is often credited with creating Seattle’s vibrant theater scene.
