More than 430 Elly nominees for the 2013-14 season were announced at an informal nomination reception on Sunday. Actors, directors, technicians and producers were on hand to listen for their names to be called.

This past season, 231 shows were submitted by 78 theaters, and 58 theaters and 124 productions received nominations.

The Davis Musical Theatre Company’s Young People’s production of “The Little Mermaid” garnered four nominations: Ana Chan and Cooper Johnson were nominated in the leading female (youth) category of a young people’s musical, while McKinley Carlisle was nominated for costumes and Dannette Vasser for lighting design.

Elisa Machado was nominated for leading female (adult) in DMTC’s Young People’s production of “Aladdin.”

DMTC’s production of “Les Miserables” received two nominations, one for Ryan Favorite for his performance as Enjolras, the leader of the student rebellion, and one for Jean Henderson for her costumes.

The UC Davis department of theater and dance picked up five nominations for its production of “Spring Awakening,” in choreography (Chris McCoy), lighting design (Stafford Arima) and sound design (Ned Jacobsen). Jessica Walsh was nominated in the leading female category, and “Spring Awakening” was nominated for best overall production (musical).

Thomas Mann also received a design nomination for UCD’s “The Grapes of Wrath.”

Elisa Marks was nominated in the supporting female category for Woodland High School’s production of “Legally Blonde.”

Named for the late Eleanor McClatchy, a devoted patron of the arts and former publisher of the Sacramento Bee, the Elly Awards celebrate excellence and the outstanding achievements of community theaters and artists in the greater Sacramento area. Created 32 years ago by local community actors, the Elly Awards have grown from a local Sacramento tradition to include theaters within a 70-mile radius.

In honor of the 32nd annual Elly Awards, SARTA will host two ceremonies in September. The youth Elly Award ceremony will begin at 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 7, at the Roseville Theatre Arts Academy. The adult Elly Award ceremony will begin at 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 21, at the Red Lion Inn-Woodlake Hotel in Sacramento. For more information, visit www.sarta.com.
