Windmill Productions and the Holland Theatre hosted the First Annual Windmill Theatre Awards Tuesday.
The ceremony was held to acknowledge all of the theatre productions in Logan County. Members of the Windmill Productions board attended every theatre performance in the county. After a production was viewed, the board members got together and selected actors out of each production and separated them into categories. The category winners were announced during the awards ceremony.
