PREVIOUS (November 15, 2016): Voting has opened for the 2016 BroadwayWorld Toronto Regional Awards, honoring productions which opened between October 1, 2015 and September 30, 2016. Nominations were completely reader-submitted and after the nomination period ended October 31, BroadwayWorld’s local editors proofed the list for eligibility and errors. Voting will run through December 31. Winners will be announced in early January!

Colton Curtis of Blackville has been nominated for Best Performance by a Male in a Featured Role (Musical – Equity) for his role of Mark Anthony.

Colton was cast in the Stratford Festival’s main stage show in February 2016. The Stratford Festival is an internationally recognized annual repertory theatre festival running from April to October in the Canadian city of Stratford, Ontario.

Directed by Donna Feore, A Chorus Line follows dancers from all walks of life, each with their own challenges and hurdles to overcome, trying to catch a break on Broadway.

“The show is really cool because it lets the audience in on the entire audition process for a Broadway show,” said Curtis.

Curtis graduated from Sheridan’s Music Theatre Performance program last year.

“(Mark) is super eager and also a little naive about what he’s getting involved with,” said Curtis. “I love that I get to play him because he’s a lot like me, in the sense that I’m this young new face in Canadian theatre, who is really excited and anxious to get out there and be involved in these big productions.”

Colton is the son of Candace (MacRae) Curtis (Kirby) and Dan Underhill.
