It was a night of laughter, fun, and awards!
Awards were voted upon by the staff and performers. Board Members Andrea Kyprianou Baum, Ashli McLeod, and Jessica Roth presented multiple awards to the staff and instructor team while Executive Directors Jocelyn Tiner, Lindsay Goldapp, Baum, and Lindsey Hertel handed out multiple awards to teams, shows, and performers!
There were also karaoke performances, including Danny Gallagher with a silently rousing Uptown Funk, Chris Sanders with Total Eclipse of the Heart, John Dixon with Gay Messiah, Ashley Jones with Maybe This Time, and a rousing group version of Como la Flor by Natalia Borja, Diane Michelle, Alicia Nava, Chris Sanders, and Tiffani Rodriguez just to name a few.
Here is a full list of all the winners of the night:
These individuals were the pulse of SG on the weekends and their hard work, countless hours, and care kept the theater thriving!
SG could not stay afloat without the help of these individuals. Not only are they hard-working and kind, but also dependable, talented, and funny.
