Redmond's production of "Forever Plaid" won outstanding performance by an ensemble cast. Senior Alex Gossard won outstanding performance by an actor in a non-singing role for his portrayal of RF Simpson in "Singin’ in the Rain." Also recognized were junior Nora DeWater and sophomore Erich Schleck, who received honorable mentions for their choreography in "Singin’ in the Rain," and Redmond Performing Arts Center technical director Ruth Barton for her lighting design in "Forever Plaid."
