Last weekend, Gaslight Theatre Company took home six Northeastern Pennsylvania Theatre Alliance Awards for our work last season on Taming of the Shrew by Williams Shakespeare and two of our original plays in our Playroom: Dining Room series. Having received 17 nominations this year, the awards show support of our mission of producing both under-produced classical and original works. Gaslight is so proud to have produced yet another Shakespeare production and supported our regional playwrights with another knock-out summer of original one-acts. Congratulations to the cast and crew of these productions!
