The OTAS Story

The OTAS Awards are given each year to honor those involved in productions at Lakewood Theatre Company. They originated in 1971.

Nominees for the OTAS Awards (Oregon Theatrical Awards Society) are judged by a panel of judges who attend all Lakewood Theatre Company shows. Performers are judged on role conception, vocal/physical interplay and performance impact on the audience.  Directors are judged on conception and interpretation of the play, use of performers as groups and overall impact. All Lakewood Theatre Company members receive ballots. Ballots are tabulated by Jerry R. Woods, Attorney at Law.
