Nominees-Best Supporting Actress


A great character actress can be a lynch pin for a production. What would Romeo and Juliet be without the Nurse? And Ado Annie totally has a better song in Oklahoma than the lead, Laurey. Being a great supporting lady takes just as much work as a leading role. Whether they're the bff, the villain or the other woman they're essential to the story. Just one week left to vote!

*Sophia Hotung, Hairspray, Face Productions

Sophia was Penny in Face Productions' spring musical. She killed it. She had great timing, excellent stage presence and we fully believed she was a checker board chick.

*Aisling McDonnell, Accidental Death of an Anarchist, NAIAD Productions

Aisling had to play the voice of reason in Anarchist, playing a reporter for the local newspaper. She was chic, she was intelligent and she was grounded in a production which thrived on chaos.

*Jennifer Fong, Champagne and Cigarettes, Aurora Theatre

C&C was a series of short plays. Miss Fong played a series of dates from hell in Check, Please. Our personal favorite, the mime.

*Jane Archibald, Hairspray, Face Productions

A villain is a very important supporting role to play. Miss Archibald played Miss Baltimore Crabs, herself in Hairspray. She was very evil indeed.

    What is a serious of short plays? Is that like a pride of lions?
