‘Elly’ nominee announcement party
August 11, 2017
The Sacramento Area Regional Theatre Alliance will announce the names of more than 400 Elly nominees at 7 p.m. Sunday.
This year's Elly nomination announcements and reception will be held at the Pioneer Congregation Church multi-purpose hall located at 2800 L Street in Sacramento. Free admission to the Elly Nomination Announcement Party includes light refreshments, membership specials and a raffle.
Immediately following the announcements, all nominees will receive printed Elly nomination certificates. If your theatre is unable to attend, certificates will be mailed. A complete nominee list will be posted to http://www.sarta.com around 9 p.m. Sunday. This year's theme is a "Black & White Ball."
Each year over 70 community theatres in the greater Sacramento area submit more than 200 shows for Elly judging. The top five vote getters in each category are then announced.
Elly nominations are given for the following categories: lead actor, lead actress, supporting actor, supporting actress, director, costume design, lighting design, set design, sound design, overall production and musical direction, and choreography, if applicable, in each of eight divisions which include comedy, drama, education-plays, education-musicals, musicals, young people's-plays, young people's-musicals and children's theatre (a new category this year). Original works nominees are given for both original scripts-adult and original scripts-youth.
The Elly Awards are announced in September at two separate ceremonies.
