Over the last few years, I've been fortunate enough to be cast in a number of wonderful plays and musicals. Most of
these shows were with theatre troupes which are members of the Northwest Indiana Excellence in Theatre
Foundation. The
Foundation hosts an Oscar-like awards evening every October, where nominated productions
perform excerpts, envelopes are opened, and award winners give tearful and/or funny speeches. It's great fun, and
I've been honored a few times by them, as you'll see in the italics below - I've been thrilled to receive three
awards and several more nominations for my acting, and to have been involved in several nominated and award-
winning shows. (You can follow the above link to learn more about the Foundation and its member theatres.)
