Kincaid’s Production Nominated for Best Production of Summer Season
Bill Kincaid’s production of SIX DANCE LESSONS IN SIX WEEKS at Cortland Repertory Theatre was nominated for three Syracuse Area Live Theatre awards. This is the third year in a row that productions he has directed have been nominated for Best Production of the Summer Season, following GROSS INDECENCY and A FEW GOOD MEN, for which WIU alum Jonathan Self, MFA 2010, was also nominated as Best Actor.
SIX DANCE LESSONS is a two-person cast, and both actors were nominated for their roles as well.
From Cortland Repertory Theatre:
Cortland Repertory Theatre (CRT) has received five nominations for the 2010 Syracuse Area Live Theatre (SALT) Awards, which recognize outstanding achievement in Central New York theatre. Hosted by the Syracuse New Times, the SALT Awards focus primarily on community theatre groups in Syracuse, but also recognize summer theatres in their own categories, which along with CRT include the Hangar Theatre in Ithaca and the Merry Go Round Playhouse in Auburn.
In the category of Best Production of the Summer Season, CRT’s musical Brigadoon and the regional premiere of the comedy Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks both received nods . . . . Six Dance Lessons . . . was directed by another long-time CRT director Bill Kincaid, who previously directed the SALT-nominated productions of Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde in 2009 and A Few Good Men in 2008.
. . . . for Best Actress of the Summer Season: Mary Williams, as the aging retiree Lily Harrison in Six Dance Lessons. . . .
For Best Actor of the Summer Season, CRT’s Producing Artistic Director Kerby Thompson received a nomination for his performance as the jaded dance instructor Michael Minnetti in Six Dance Lessons. . . .
The awards ceremony will be held at the Palace Theater in Syracuse on Sunday, May 1. The ceremony is open to the public and tickets may be purchased through the Syracuse New Times.
