The 12th Annual Wally Award Winners

The 12th Annual Wally Awards on Friday, June 22nd, enjoyed a great turnout filled with OBSP members, the OBSP board of directors, the Levoy Theatre staff, season subscribers, as well as family and friends who came together to celebrate the success of our 2017 season. The ceremony, hosted by Tyler Daddario and Katie Kiessling, featured a witty opening number, special performances by the casts of our 2017 season productions, the reveal of our Wally Award winners, a special presentation by Lauren Van Embden, a touching dedication to Janet “Gmom” Christy, and the announcement of our 2019 season!

A reminder that the nominations for the Wally Awards are made by OBSP stage directors, the OBSP Artistic Director, and board members. Award selections are made by OBSP subscribers, whose ballots are tabulated by an independent source with no Off Broad Street Players affiliation.
