2005 Edwina Awards a funny a affair

In an informal and slightly irreverent show on Saturday, the Egyptian Theatre Company handed out its annual Edwina Awards on Saturday, recognizing the organization’s outstanding performances. Theatre company board member Marc Raymond and artistic director Dana Durbano Keiter hosted the show, which featured drag-queen award "girls" and a preview of the Egyptian’s upcoming season. Ali Bennett, who played Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz," won the Best Actress award, and Daniel Simons won the Best Actor award for his role as Judas in "Jesus Christ Superstar." Justin Bryce Olsen took the Best Supporting Actor award for his role as Herod in "Jesus Christ Superstar," and in a twist, Doug Irey a man won the Best Supporting Actress award for playing Jacob the Maid in "La Cage aux Folles." Marnie Sears won the Excellence in Design award for her work designing the sets of "Jesus Christ Superstar" and "La Cage aux Folles," and David Evanoff was awarded the Excellence in Direction statue for directing the music in "Jesus Christ Superstar." The theatre company handed out three special awards, giving the Ray Carlson Award for service to crew-member Sam Mohler and the President’s Award to outgoing Egyptian Theatre Company Board President Debbie Walsh. Kevin Shannon won the Community Outreach Award for his continued contributions to the organization. For the Follies awards, Tom Clyde was recognized for his scriptwriting and Marc Raymond was awarded the acting statue. The Best Act award went to "ExtreMO Make-over." – Matt James
