Spectacular Surprise! Sumunar Music Director Wins 2015 Ivey Award!


On the evening of September 21, Joko and Tri Sutrisno attended the Ivey Award Ceremony at the State Theater in Minneapolis, thinking they were there to see Green T Productions be honored in some way. BUT NO—the award went to Joko Sutrisno (Sumunar music director) specifically, as music arranger/director for the show “Prince Rama’s Journey,” which played at Heart of the Beast Theatre in October/November 2014. It was a Green T Production with collaboration by Sumunar, so the honor was definitely to be shared. In this photo, Joko and Kathy Welch (Green T artistic director) display the Ivey Award received plus their own happy smiles. Congratulations!!

The Ivey Awards ceremony began in 2004, with two primary objectives: 1) To celebrate and increase awareness of Twin Cities professional theater, and 2) to create a celebration for ALL people who love Twin Cities theater—those within the theater community and those in the audience. The non-nomination based awards recognize outstanding achievements within the past theater season in direction, performance, design, etc. The awards were founded by Scott Mayer and are administered by a panel of local theater professionals and theater patrons.
