From murderous playwrights to misplaced Shakespearean characters, a quarrel between high schoolers to a debate between Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso, Rice University Theater 2011-12 dabbled in everything ordinary and extraordinary. Though the actors on stage captivated audiences with memorable performances, they were the tip of the iceberg that made this year’s Rice theater season successful.
Tabulated from over 400 votes, The Sammys award audience-favorites: thespians and directors, orchestras and set designers. This year, Will Rice College Players’ “Deathtrap” and Wiess College Tabletop’s “Hello, Hamlet!” stole the show, garnering nine and 10 total awards, respectively.
Congratulations to everyone involved in Rice’s theater productions this year. You not only have enlivened campus, but also have been a welcome feature in the Arts and Entertainment section of the Thresher.
