As you may remember from last year, the Barrymore Awards are given for excellence in professional theater in the Philadelphia region. With the huge number of professional theaters in the city and surrounding counties, a Barrymore nomination is a big thing.
I'm pleased to say that our own Theatre Horizon this year has received a total of NINETEEN Barrymore nominations for their productions of "In the Blood" and "Into The Woods." They had at least one nomination in the majority of categories and more than one for "Into The Woods" under Best Supporting Actor and Actress.
