Since Gaslight will be celebrating the end of their 50th Anniversary season at this year’s ceremony, the theme for the Charlie Awards is “Cheers to 50 More”.
The Charlie Awards were named in honor of Charles Norman Duff, a mainstay of Enid Community Theatre from its inception until his death in 1971. From his first role as a gangster in Mrs. McThing to his last as Oscar in The Odd Couple, Charles Norman Duff was a stellar performer.
In addition, he supported Gaslight Theatre in all aspects—from selling tickets to doing custodial work. The fact that he enjoyed all facets of the theatre was evident in his vast support and participation.
So please join us on August 26th as we honor live theatre in Enid, Oklahoma!
