The O.T.A.S. Story ...
    The O.T.A.S. (Oregon Theatrical Awards Society) Awards were originated in 1971 by the board of directors of the theatre. Each year these awards are given to honor those involved in productions at Lakewood Theatre Company. The first actual awards were framed photographs from the shows. Over the years the award has evolved into a professional looking free standing plaque designed by Jim Conway. Each one is engraved with the name of the winner, year and name of production.    
    Nominees for O.T.A.S. Awards are evaluated by a panel of judges who attend all shows. Performers are judged on role conception, vocal/physical interplay, and performance impact on an audience. Directors are judged on conception and interpretation of the play, use of performers as groups, and overall impact. All contributing members of Lakewood Theatre Company receive ballots which are tabulated by Jerry R. Woods, Attorney at Law. Winners are then announced at our Annual OTAS Awards party on June 30th of each year.

The OTAS Awards have been presented annually since the 1971-72 season to recognize outstanding performances, productions and directors at Lakewood Theatre Company. All LTC members vote in the OTAS Selections. Nominees for OTAS awards are judged by a panel of five judges who attend all shows. Performers are judged on role conception, vocal, physical interplay and performance impact on audience. Directors are judged on conception and interpretation of play, use of performers as groups, and impact.

The ballots are tabulated by an attorney at law and from 1972- 2008 David Berentson was the tabulator. Since 2009 the tabulator has been Jerry Woods.
