A recent production at Alton Little Theater has earned the troupe a pair of awards.  The Drowsy Chaperone was nominated in a record fourteen categories at the 15th Annual Arts for Life Best Performance Awards, and took home top honors for Diana Enloe for Set Design and an award for Best Duo/Group Performance given to Eddie Hitchcock and Jeff Pruett at the "gangsters."

Enloe says this is a great way to honor the efforts of local theater.

Forty-three musical theater productions competed in twenty-five categories, which is often produced in the afternoon before the televised Tony Awards.  ALT's  former Director Emeritus, Cliff Davenport, was also honored for his contributions to  community theater. Arts for Life encompasses theaters from the Greater St. Louis area and several theaters in Illinois.
