Colton Curtis of Blackville has been nominated for Best Performance by a Male in a Featured Role (Musical – Equity) for his role of Mark Anthony.

Colton was cast in the Stratford Festival’s main stage show in February 2016. The Stratford Festival is an internationally recognized annual repertory theatre festival running from April to October in the Canadian city of Stratford, Ontario.

Directed by Donna Feore, A Chorus Line follows dancers from all walks of life, each with their own challenges and hurdles to overcome, trying to catch a break on Broadway.

“The show is really cool because it lets the audience in on the entire audition process for a Broadway show,” said Curtis.

Curtis graduated from Sheridan’s Music Theatre Performance program last year.

“(Mark) is super eager and also a little naive about what he’s getting involved with,” said Curtis. “I love that I get to play him because he’s a lot like me, in the sense that I’m this young new face in Canadian theatre, who is really excited and anxious to get out there and be involved in these big productions.”

Colton is the son of Candace (MacRae) Curtis (Kirby) and Dan Underhill.
