Sunday was a big night at the Orpheum for Addams Family director Cecelia Wingate. Not only did her spooky musical lead the pack in Ostrander Awards, she also picked up an Ossie for best supporting actress for her work in Distance, a Voices of the South world premiere. Other big winners included Bad Jews and Vanya, and Sonia, and Masha, and Spike.

Winners in the college division included The Physicists, The Wedding Singer, Good Woman of Setzuan, and Thebes: Contending with Gods and Contemplating Sphinxes.

Mary Poppins starts the show. Practically perfectly.
