Nominations for The Column Awards were announced recently and I am pleased to report I’ve been nominated Best Supporting Actor in a Play, Equity for my performance in last summer’s production of Hope & Gravity at Circle Theatre. This is my second nomination in this category and my fifth nomination overall. I am grateful to all Column voters for the recognition and congratulate all the nominees.
The Column Awards honors excellence in theater throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth theater community, both in Equity and Non-Equity theater companies. This marks their 16th year uniting and celebrating the accomplishments of all artists who bring to life the art of theater.
Nominations are made by the over 22,000 readers who subscribe to The Column. Practically everyone and anyone who is involved in DFW theater is a subscriber as well as those who love to attend and support this beautiful art. Thus, those nominated have been chosen not only by the very peers with whom they work but also the very audiences for whom they perform.
The Column Awards is also a major fundraiser gala for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids, a charity they have supported since year one. They have raised & donated close to $70,000.00 to BC/EFA to date. The Column Awards is the only awards organization in the entire United States that donates all money raised (after expenses) from ticket sales of the gala to BC/EFA. The Column Awards has been very honored to have been acknowledged by the national media, BC/EFA, Actor’s Equity Association, and the Broadway community for their fundraising efforts.
