ALTON — Alton Little Theater took home top honors April 15 at the Theater Mask Awards at the Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville.
ALT was honored for the December production of “Miracle On South Division Street,” with Best Actress nod going to Gail Drillinger and Best Direction, Best Small Ensemble and Best Comedy of the Season given to Lee Cox for the holiday-themed show by Tom Dudzick.
ALT President Kevin Frakes was on hand to congratulate the cast.
“ALT has gone through some big changes and challenges the past six months, but it really feels like we’re a family again,” Frakes said.
The theater group received 11 nominations and four wins for three of last year’s productions. 2016 will produce four comedies and one drama in the St. Louis-based competition that is an off-shoot of Arts for Life’s Best Performance Awards.
