Arlington Theater Company Earns WATCH Awards

Dominion Stage took home multiple honors from Washington Area Theatre Community Honors (WATCH) for artistic and technical excellence in Community Theater.

"We are excited about the wealth of talent represented by this year's WATCH Award nominees and winners," said Roy Peterson, WATCH Chair. "This group is just one indicator of the vitality of the DC-metro community theatre scene."

There were a total of 114 productions (42 musicals and 72 plays) judged in 2013 from which nominations and awardees were chosen. The WATCH awards were announced at a ceremony at the Birchmere on Sunday evening, March 9.
