Theater Awards: And the Ovation Goes to…:

On Monday, January 11,  L.A. Stage Alliance will honor dozens of theatres in Los Angeles County at the 20th annual Ovation Awards, covering the 2008/2009 season. Established in 1989, the awards are doled out by theatre professionals in the area, people who know first-hand about the gallons of blood, sweat and tears that get pumped into the live theatre scene every day.

This year’s nominees list includes a few theatres local to the City of Santa Monica, including The Geffen Playhouse, Pacific Resident Theatre, The Odyssey Theatre and The Kirk Douglas Theatre. The complete list of nominees is lengthy, so here’s a partial list, highlighting nominees in Santa Monica, Culver City, Venice, Malibu and the Westside. Best of luck to our local talent.
