Lost Nation Theater Continues its 31st Season at Montpelier City Hall Arts Center with a Tony Viewing Party to celebrate the 73rd Tony Awards and our Fantastic Volunteers!

 

 To celebrate love for theater as well as to celebrate all the theater lover’s in our community, Lost Nation Theater is thrilled to continue its 31st Season as Montpelier’s Resident professional theater with a Tony Viewing Party to view the 73rd Annual Tony Award Ceremony!

The Tony Awards will take place on Sunday, June 9th and the broadcast will begin at 8 pm.
Our doors will open at 7:30 pm at City Hall Arts Center, Montpelier.

 

The Tony Awards are held each year to recognize achievement in Broadway productions during the current season. The ceremony is held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City and is broadcast live. This year, James Corden will serve as host. We will be streaming the ceremony as it airs live at Lost Nation so that the community can come together to watch as a community. 

LNT’s Tony Viewing event was conceived as an extra-special thank you for our volunteers - but everyone is welcome to come and join the party!! 
Come and enjoy treats to eat, fill out a ballot of your Tony Award predictions, and watch the Tony’s live on the big screen.
At the end of the night, we will see who’s Tony predictions were the closest!

Nominations this year include Hadestown - a show originated right here in central Vermont, which received 14 nominations, the most of any production of the season.
This is followed by Ain’t Too Proud with 12, and Tootsie with 11. The plays The Ferryman and To Kill a Mockingbird each received nine nominations.

This year’s Tony Awards are particularly special for Vermonters with Hadestown sweeping the most award nominations of the season. Hadestown’s creator, Anais Mitchell, is a Vermont native who created and originally premiered the musical in Vermont back in 2006. She then took the musical on a statewide tour of Vermont in 2007, where it even played at Lost Nation Theater!

While Hadestown is much different now than it was when it played in Vermont, it is still a wonderful example of the talent, creativity, and success of Vermonters.
This is LNT's opportunity to not only celebrate theater but to show our appreciation for all  that help to make theater in this community, and Vermont, possible.

The Antoinette Perry Award for Excellence in Broadway Theatre, more commonly known as the Tony Award, recognizes excellence in live Broadway theatre and is named after Antoinette "Tony" Perry, co-founder of the American Theatre Wing.
