West Windsor, N.J. – The Kelsey Awards are back! K2K Entertainment and Mercer County Community College’s Kelsey Theatre will host the Second Annual Kelsey Theatre Awards on Saturday, August 11, at 7 p.m. This entertaining and unique awards show will be held in the theater, on the college’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
After holding a successful premiere awards show in 2011, K2KEntertainment has returned to plan an evening quite unlike any other. Awards will be presented to the best theatrical productions and performers that took the stage during the 2011-2012 Kelsey Theatre season, as selected via two rounds of voting from the community -- for Best Musical, Best Choreography, Best Actor, and many more categories that will ultimately create a night full of fun and excitement!
The awards show will be hosted by actor and comedian Kyrus Keenan Westcott, and co-hosted by the talented Kelsey Theatre veteran Dominick Sannelli. Both actors were most recently seen on the Kelsey stage in Playful Theatre Productions’ “A Chorus Line.”
The show will feature special performances from the cast of “AIDA,” “Urinetown: The Musical,” “The Drowsy Chaperone,” “A Chorus Line,” and “Camelot,” all of which have been nominated for Outstanding Production of a Musical.
Cameo performances by Kelsey fans’ favorite personalities from every production company, as well as a special performance by the 2012 Kelsey Theatre Dance Squad, will round out the evening.
Also included in the night’s festivities will be the presentation of The Kelsey Theatre Lifetime Achievement Award to Robert A. Terrano, who received 125 nominations. Terrano pushes the technical limit of theatrical productions, dedicating his life to helping performers shine brightly on the stage. As coordinator of MCCC’s Entertainment Technology program and a frequent collaborator with multiple resident Kelsey Theatre production companies, his knowledge of theatrical lighting and sound are unmatched in the Kelsey community.
Tickets are $12 for all ages, and can be purchased through the box office at 609-570-3333, or online. Kelsey Theatre is wheelchair accessible, with free parking available next to the theater.
