Sayville Players Award Ceremony
Sayville Players Theatre Arts 2011-2012 AWARDS
Every year, comedy and nostalgia blend at the annual Sayville Players’ Induction and Awards Ceremony. While saying goodbye is hard to do, the traditional passing of the baton (or, in some cases, canes, strange costumes, and even a turquoise, peasant skirt) adds refreshing levity to this high school awards ceremony.
Again this year, the departing slate of officers bequeathed amusing props or confounding advice filled with wit and unpredictable improvisations upon their successors. As recipients were announced and awarded, there was genuine catharsis when the winners of the memorial awards were named.
