The Hostesses of The 2015 Kelsey Awards in action – JMK!

On July 25th, The 2015 Kelsey Awards officially arrived, bringing all your favorite Kelsey Theatre stage performers and production teams under the same roof.

The fifth addition of the annual award show, hosted successfully by Jaimie McMillin, Maria Aromando, and Kim Cupo (or, #JMK), featured performances from some of the most popular and critically acclaimed Kelsey shows of the year, as well as a hefty dose of various sketches, reunions, comedy, cameos, and memorable musical numbers, including a show stopping performance of “I’d Give it All for You” by Samantha Sharpe and Andre Jamal Williams featuring the 2015 Dance Squad.

Frontrunners of the night included Outstanding Musical nominees “Cats”, “The Secret Garden” and “Into the Woods”, all three of which packed a punch with multiple nominations. (With “Cats” walking away with the biggest award of the night.) “Picasso at the Lapin Agile”, “Lend Me a Tenor” and “The Winter’s Tale” dominated the Play categories this year.
