PAMTA nominees: the musical-theater awards list

It's awards season in Portland theater, and the PAMTA nominees join the previously announced Drammy finalists in the spotlight

With the traditional season wrapping up (although theater’s become a whole-calendar sport in Portland) it’s coming up on award season in Portland theater.

Last week, the Drammy Awards announced nominees for this year’s 37th annual awards ceremony, which will be at the Newmark Theatre on Monday, June 29. You can recap the nominees here.

Today, the city’s musical-theater awards group announced its nominees for the eighth annual PAMTAs, Portland Area Musical Theatre Awards, which will be Monday, June 15, in the Winningstad Theatre, downstairs from the Newmark. There’s some crossover in the listings (the Drammys consider musical-theater productions in addition to other kinds of theater, but the PAMTAs dig more deeply into the metropolitan area’s active musical-theater scene.

Here’s today’s release listing the PAMTA nominees:
