Taking the Prize 

Announcing the winners of the Ostrander Awards.

The 2004 Ostrander Awards honoring Memphis theater were presented Sunday night, and there were few surprises. In fact, it's safe to say there were no surprises. It seems some copies of the September issue of Memphis magazine, which contained a list of the winners, inadvertently went out to subscribers late last week. Word of the winners soon spread among the theater community via various Internet chat boards, making the presentations somewhat anticlimactic. A good time was still had by all, however. It was an attitude perhaps best expressed by the Arts Council's Janie McCrary in her introduction: "You're actors. So act surprised!"
