    Altogether, nine productions by students in the Northwest Region (Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska) were nominated for national awards.

    The awards will be live-streamed from the Los Angeles campus of Emerson College on Thursday, October 18 at noon, and will be hosted by television personality Tom Bergeron, star of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.
