TOWNSHEND The Leland and Gray Players have been named the sole secondary school recipient of the 2014 Moss Hart Award. Presented every year at the New England Theatre Conference (NETC) the award honors outstanding productions in four different categories from around New England.
Moss Hart (1904-1961) was a renowned dramatist and director who made major contributions to Broadway in its Golden Age with plays he wrote or co-authored with George S. Kaufman including Once in a Lifetime and You Can’t Take It with You . His Hollywood credits include screen plays for A Star is Born and The Man Who Came to Dinner.
Early last spring, the Players applied to the NETC to submit their May 2014 production of A Midsummer Night's Dream for the award which honors Hart's wit, sensitivity, and enthusiasm for life. According to the NETC, “The award is given to productions of scripts that are strong both literally and artistically and that present stories of human courage and dignity.” After accepting the Players application, the NETC sent reviewers to two performances. To complete the process for consideration, director Ann Landenberger was required to submit documents and photos in support of the application. Out of ten secondary school finally under consideration across New England, the Players were selected for the Moss Hart Award in the secondary school division.
