Mesquite Community Theatre held their annual awards banquet Saturday night and presented two awards to cast members of their 2009 production of To Gillian On Her 37th Birthday. Written by Michael Brady and directed by Brad Stephens, the critically-acclaimed production ran in April of last year and garnered multiple nominations.
Larry Jack Dotson took home the coveted People’s Choice Award. Dotson won the hearts of audiences with his sincere performance as Paul, a seemingly brow-beaten husband who carefully chooses when to assert himself. Arlette Morgan took home the Best Featured Actress trophy for her multi-layered portrayal of the title character.
Congratulations go out to them and all the winners of this year’s banquet.
