Nancy Awards 2015-2016 Season

On Saturday, October 1, 2016, Carrollwood Players was transformed into a 1920s Speakeasy. It was a night of wannabe gangsters and leggy flappers at the Roaring 20s Party celebrating the 2016 Nancy Awards.

Emceed by board member and Nine and Numb founder Kelly Clow, The Nancy Awards honored both Mainstage and Black Box productions. Guys and dames mingled with fellow theatre-lovers and got complimentary souvenir boudoir and booking photos to memorialize this special evening by board member Deb Kelley and

Nancy Awards 2014-2015 Season

On Saturday, Oct. 17, 2015  it appeared as if Doc Brown had parked his DeLorean in front of the theatre, and guests had been transported to the colorful 1980s.

Working into the wee hours of the morning, board members and several dedicated volunteers transformed the theater space into a vintage ’80s prom theme to honor Tampa’s oldest continually running nonprofit community theater’s 1981 inception.

Men decked out in suits circa Miami Vice and woman broke out the big dresses and even bigger hair, only to have “prom photos” taken under a canopy of pink and teal balloons. “Mickey” blared from the DJ’s sound system and the room was a glow of black, hot pink and teal. A mirrored disco ball sparkled above the dance floor.

Nancy Awards 2013-2014 Season

The awards were held at Eagles Golf Course on Racetrack Road.  The room was decked out for the Nancy Awards and so were its guests. Guests got to know one another better by trying to determine (without peeking) who the celebrity/movie was that was in the envelope given to them upon arrival.  A buffet style dinner was enjoyed by all as the nominees waited for his or her name to be called.  Shutterfly Photo Album
