We are so proud to announce The Little Theatre of Watertown's winnings at the Theater Association of New York State (TANYS) festival in Batavia, NY last weekend Nov 16-18, 2012. Please let the public know of this great cultural asset in their community!
  • Little Theatre's production of Love, Loss & What I Wore by Nora and Delia Ephron, directed by Daniel Allington, was selected as one of seven plays to be presented at the festival from 187 plays adjudicated over the past year in NYS. Just being selected as one of the shows to participate is a huge honor. Picture attached of cast & crew from left to right: Todd Thompson, Tina Thompson, Kathie Strader, Elizabeth P. Smith, Bruce Smith, Bethany Dumas, Emily Smith, and Daniel Allington.
  • A panel of three national adjudicators chose our own Kathie Strader as the receipient of the Outstanding Actor Award for her performance in Love, Loss & What I Wore (the TANYS equivalent of the Oscar). Picture attached of Kathie Strader with her award.
