BENCHWARMERS 13 Audience Award Announcement
"It is impossible to choose - they were all good in their own way!"
"Love those Stagehands"
"What a New, Witty, Brave evening in the Theatre!"
"So Santa Fe Original"
"Perhaps the Best Year Yet!"
Audience members took things into their own hands at this year's BenchWarmers 13. Not only did they vote by checking off their favorites, but many took the time to grade them, place them on a scale, and provide thorough critiques. So much positive feedback. From over 800 ballots cast, here are the "Best of the Bench" Audience Award winners:
First Place: Senior Trip by Kelly Huertas
Second Place: From Falling Down by Chadney Everett
Third Place: Hijacked by Lisa Gray Fisher
And to everyone involved in BenchWarmers 13! The hard work and talent was apparent. We thank all of you as we continue to develop ways to support our community's emerging playwrights!
GOOD NIGHT, SWEET PRINCE
Dan Gerrity lit up the stage of the Santa Fe Playhouse for many years and served as a member of its board for the last six. In that time, he became the driving force behind the Playhouse's effort to showcase local writing, directing, and acting talent, primarily through the annual Benchwarmers production. He brought tenacious intelligence and exuberant poise to all these efforts, raising the bar - and everyone's expectations - about what community theater could and should be. We at the Playhouse are grateful to have known Dan as an actor, director, producer, mentor, colleague, and above all, friend.
Next to the word Presence in anyone's mind is Dan Gerrity. His Loss will be felt not just at "the oldest continuously running theatre west of the Mississippi," but to the Stage and Cinema World at large.
