Omaha Nebraska’s Theatre Arts Guild’s (TAG) annual award nominees were announced this week, with The Candy Project‘s knock-out production of ROOMS: A ROCK ROMANCE earning a Best Actress nom for Jaimie Pruden. Her phenomenal performance as Monica will long be remembered by the audiences of The Candy Project’s August 2011 show.
ROOMS: A ROCK ROMANCE begins in late 1970’s Glasgow where Monica, an ambitious singer/songwriter meets Ian, a reclusive rocker. The two quickly become entangled creatively and romantically. Their music takes them first to London and ultimately to New York City, where they discover the vibrant new music scene and create an intimate partnership, their love deepening while their personalities drive them apart. A five-piece rock band accompanies these two characters as they search for the balance between ambition and happiness. The Candy Project production played August 4-20 at the Bancroft Street Market in Omaha.
