The Penny Award Actorsingers is pleased to announce Ted Rusomanis as the most recent recipient of our distinguished Penny Award. Ted, who currently serves as Vice President on our Board of Directors, has earned this honor by virtue of his great devotion and boundless commitment to the success of Actorsingers.

Theatre-goers may remember him on-stage as Bert in 42nd Street, Curly in Oklahoma!, Tony in West Side Story, the tinman in The Wiz and Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors.

The Penny Award (named after Penny Tamulonis, one of our founders) is discriminately bestowed to those who exhibit outstanding dedication. We heartily congratulate Ted upon this well-deserved tribute.
