Stratford’s Square One Theatre Company has announced the Subscriber Award nominees from their 25th anniversary season. The company recently completed its 2014-2015 season with Terence Rattigan’s classic drama, The Winslow Boy which leads with 10 nominations including nine for its cast members. The season also included critically praised productions of Lee Blessing’s A Walk in the Woods, Steven Otfinoski’s Stratford Characters and David Lindsay-Abaire’s Good People.

For the 20th annual Subscriber Awards, Square One’s Executive Board of Directors has selected nominees in five separate acting categories and one for Outstanding Production. The theatre’s more than 1,000 subscribers have been mailed ballots to choose actual winners. The results of the balloting will be announced at a special evening held at Stratford’s Riverview Bistro on June 19.

Pat Leo and Damian Long were both nominated for Outstanding Actor.

Nominees for Outstanding Actor include the two member cast of A Walk in the Woods, Pat Leo (Monroe) and Damian Long (Fairfield), as a pair of diplomats from Russia and America. Also nominated were Barry Hatrick (Milford) for his performance as Igor Sikorsky in Stratford Characters, Bruce Murray as the patriarch in The Winslow Boy and Brian Riley (New Haven) as an amoral doctor in Good People.

The race for Outstanding Actress is between Tess Brown (Bridgeport) for her role as the feminist daughter in The Winslow Boy, Sally Arlette Garcia (New Britain) as Stratford’s notorious witch, Goody Basset, in Stratford Characters and Janet Rathert (New Canaan) as a lower-class Boston Southie trying to make ends meet in Good People. Rathert won the category last season for her work in Time Stands Still and Brown is a previous winner in 2010 for her featured role in The Clearing at Square One. Garcia made her debut this season at the theatre.

The Outstanding Featured Actress category includes three women from Good People: Alice McMahon (Ridgefield), Jessica Myers (New Haven) and Danielle Sultini (Milford). Ann Kinner (Westport), who played the long-suffering wife in The Winslow boy, completes the list. The Outstanding Featured Actor category has four men from Winslow: Jim Buffone (Milford), Ryan Hendrickson (Stamford), Joseph Maker (Darien) and David Victor (Fairfield). Darius Copland (Pelham, NY) as a Dollar Store manager in Good People and Gregoire Mouning (North Haven) as a slave who wins his freedom in Stratford Characters, are also nominated.

Two Stratford actors featured in smaller roles in The Winslow Boy will compete for Outstanding Cameo Appearance. They are Lucy Babbitt, as an opinionated maid and Sam Noccioli, as the title character, in the period drama.
