  • Alumnus Tyler Cozart received the honor for “Excellence in Lighting Design” for his work on Lobby Hero.
  • Yesenia Tafur, costume shop supervisor, was honored for “Excellence in Costume Design of a Play” for Lobby Hero, while her work in Talley’s Folly received the award for “Excellent Production of a Comedy.”

“It’s amazing to have my work recognized for something so long ago,” said Egger. “But I think that just shows how the message we were trying to create with Talley’s Folly still resonated long enough to be recognized, Mark Stringham (left), Yesenia Tafur (middle) and Tyler Cozart (right) pose with Globe Awards even a year and a half after. I’m really grateful that it was able to reach and sustain inside people for so long.”

The Alamo Theatre Arts Council’s mission is “to recognize and celebrate the work of our local theater artists and to stimulate and encourage the pursuit of excellence in artistic and production standards.”
