Connie McMillan to Receive Equity's Lucy Jordan Humanitarian Award
McMillan is a resident of Austin, Texas and was nominated for the award by actors, producers, patrons and critics alike. She is described as "an integral part of the theater community in Austin for more than 40 years." Among her credits is a position as Box Office Manager for the University of Texas Performing Arts Center for 23 years; working part-time for the University Interscholastic League; and serving on the nominating committee for the B. Iden Payne Awards, which recognizes excellence in Austin theater.
In a statement, McMillan remarks, "Loving theatre the way I do, I was so grateful to be able to contribute to the profession behind the scenes and I never wanted any recognition since the production IS the reward. But this honor is most welcome since it comes from other professionals who understand fully what it takes to make the magic happen."
