THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARDS

In 1988, the Pittsfield Players celebrated their 20th Anniversary with an elaborate evening at Lake Shore Farms in Northwood, NH. The evening included entertainment from the Seabees
from "South Pacific," Karen Jordan, and Mal Cameron. Video clips were shown and a parade of members discussed their memories of the Players and the shows
they had been in. Finally, the first Hall of Fame awards were presented to members.

The People's Choice Awards were a way of recognizing some of the accomplishments of the Players up to that time. The winners were decided by a public ballot, printed in the Suncook Valley Sun, for people to cast their vote and mail to the Players.
The results were as follows with winners receiving handsome mugs: (for shows 1968-1988)
