Those on the list include performers,technical artists, directors, community members and guest celebrities that are excited to help celebrate the pursuit of excellence that this year’s nominees exhibit. These presenters include Denton Florian, director of the Sam Houston Documentary; Mary McCoy, a recent inductee into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame; and Roy Harris, a former world heavyweight boxer.
The Monties will also present two people that hold a piece of local theater history you won’t believe that will be revealed at the very end of the ceremony.
The largest performing arts awards in Conroe is growing in size and venue starting with the 2015 event. This year, The Monties will include The Players Theater Company, as well as the newest addition of Stage Right of Texas.
Don Hampton’s career in theater is, to make a pun, storied. During his time in the Montgomery County theater community Hampton has garnered respect as a director of many shows, but also for his elaborate and technically detailed sets.
Adena Nelson Sweeney won two awards at the first Montie Awards ceremony in 2012. She has the distinct honor of being the first to receive the Best Overall Performance by an Actor or Actress in a Musical, Comedy or Drama. What made the award interesting is that Sweeney won her award after being named Best Supporting Actress in a Musical for her role in “Nunsense,” directed by Travis Bryant, rather than a leading role one might would assume would nab the title.
