UD Theatre Program Receives 12 Daytony Awards

Congratulations to the University of Dayton Theatre Program which was awarded 12 DayTony Awards for the 2011-2012 academic year.  The DayTony Awards are presented by the Dayton Theatre Hall of Fame to recognize outstanding performance, whether on stage or behind the scenes at Dayton area theatres, according to the DayTony Awards website, www.daytonys.org. 

One of the nine University of Dayton award recipients for the 2011-2012 year, Darrell Anderson, secured two awards for his work on the performance Eleemosynary which was performed this past February.  Anderson had this to say about the DayTony Awards: “Oh! I’m always thrilled when we get them, especially when students get them, it’s great.  Being noted for something, it’s really nice.” 

As an associate professor and director of the theater program at UD, Anderson has seen the theater program at UD receive several DayTony Awards in the past.  Although UD has won DayTonys in previous years, “this may be the most we’ve gotten in one year,” said Anderson.  In fact, since the DayTony awards were created for the 2003-2004 year, the only other time UD has received more than ten awards was for the 2007-2008 year, when the theatre program at UD received eleven awards.
