    The Breadthrough party last night was a fun filled and emotion filled evening. The bits and pieces of past shows, the awards, the entertainment, Wade’s emotional singing, the food, …. All was great. It was a “CLASS ACT”.

    It’s a shame they didn’t have room for more people. Elizabeth, sorry you missed it.

    Just curious: how were the winners selected?

  3. throughout the season, guests were randomly selected to receive a ballot after the performance, fill it out, giving each actor a rating, on a scale of 1 to 5, I think it was
    Wade will have to explain the rest. He told us, and all I remember is they were all totaled and then a percentage was determined. The top five in each category received the nomination.

  5. Thanks Betsy! 3-5 ballots are given to randomly selected people and theater members at each show. Actors are rated from 1-5. At the end of the run, rankings are added up and divided by the number of votes which gives a percentage. At the end of the season, the top five percentages are the nominees and the top percentage is the winner.
