Tommy Tune Award: The 2011 production of The Music Man received four nominations, Best Choreography, Best Musical Direction, Best Orchestra and Best Set Design, out of a possible thirteen nominations. We were proud to receive these nominations. However, the Cast, Crew, Pit Band and Directors were extremely disappointed that the cast did not receive more recognitions and that the show missed the Best Show nomination for the first time since 2004. The show proved to be a favorite in Friendswood, playing to capacity houses.
