Following SBMT’s Preview Night performance for Thoroughly Modern Millie on May 18, 2019, Executive Director Sara Dean invited the audience to stay for a few extra minutes as the staff conferred special awards to outstanding members of the cast, crew, and orchestra.
The Gypsy Robe was renamed the Legacy Robe, following the adoption of that name by Actors Equity. Traditionally, the robe is presented by the previous recipient, but Big River winner Libby Moore Schroeder was unable to attend because she had just given birth to a new baby! (Audiences may remember her as visibly pregnant in last January’s production.) Filling in for Libby was Dallas Carter, who had won the robe for Mame last fall.
The following awards were presented
- Newcomer Award: James M. Jones
- Legacy Robe Award: Lindsey Duran
- Orchestra Award: Ricky Hall
- Technical Award: Heather Kenyon
- Producers Award: Elizabeth Geurts
