New Stagers In-House Awards
In November 2003, New Stagers held our first in-house awards ceremony to establish the views of the entire group and award recognition to several deserving productions and members. As this was the first ceremony, members were allowed to vote on productions from the last five years. The ceremony is now biennial, with the group voting on shows for the two previous years.
