On a lovely evening in March 2009, the George Nakano Theater was standing room only for the 1st Annual Shakespeare Awards Reception.

 

The black tie event was a smashing success!

 

A stunning bronze medallion, designed by nationally respected sculptor, Cinthia Joyce, was awarded to all top category winners.

 

Cash prizes were awarded to the top three plays in the Adult catagory.

"Where art thou, Muse, that thou forget'st so long

To speak of that which gives thee all thy might?"
