LAWRENCEVILLE -- The Aurora Theatre has been nominated for 18 Suzi Bass Awards and 15 of those nominations came from its production of "Clyde 'n Bonnie: A Folktale."

In the acting community, being nominated for a Suzi is quite an honor. For those who don't know about the awards, they were founded in 2003 by artists mourning the death of Suzi Bass, a well-known local actress who performed on numerous Atlanta stages and passed away in 2002.

Not just any theater can be part of the Suzis -- there are certain criteria to be filled. The theaters must have the legal rights to plays before they can perform them, they need at least 12 showings of a play and each crew member has to be paid every week.

On Nov. 5, the theater will learn how many of the awards its taking back to Lawrenceville. For more information about the awards show, visit www.suziawards.org.
