Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble is pleased to announce its nominees for the 40th Annual Shellie Awards! The Shellie Awards will be held at the Dean Lesher Center for the Arts on January 12, 2019. 
The Shellie Award nominations are in - 08/09/18
For this season, both Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble and Brentwood Theater Company (BTC) produced eligible shows, Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble essentially arose from BTC following the retirement of Jack and Betty Gaughan. As such, BTC's Calendar Girls is Shellie-eligible in the play categories, and Ghostlight's Man of La Mancha is eligible in the musical categories.
Congratulations to the nominees, and to the entire cast and crew for both shows. We've had an amazing season, and look forward to our upcoming shows - Ken Ludwig's Fox on the Fairway in October 2018, and Honk! in July 2019.
