Four’s a charm for Lighting Designer Dan Hassenmayer.
The Amity Alum has been doing the lighting for Amity Shows for many years.
For the past four he’s been nominated for his Outstanding Lighting Design work for the Ct High School Musical Theater Awards.
On Sunday, Dan told Orange Live he felt like Leonardo DeCaprio, always nominated, but never a winner. That changed Tuesday night, when he won the CHSMT award for his work on Sweeney Todd.
While most of the Amity theater people involved in the production were at the Palace Theater in Waterbury, Dan was at Amity High School getting the lighting ready for this weekend’s Pops Concerts.
Director Rob Kennedy accepted the award for him. Video of that acceptance speech can be found on our Facebook page.
