Best Local Female Actor
Susan Roberts Knowlson
Knowlson has definitely been the hottest — and busiest — actress in town for the past couple of years. Often she’s in rehearsal for her next show, at Children’s Theatre or CPCC Summer Theatre, while she’s still dazzling daily or nightly in a current comedy or musical. When you have Knowlson’s flair for comedy and song, with beauty that matches your height, you stay in demand, roving from hayseed Nellie Forbush in South Pacific to dragon lady Mrs. Meers in Thoroughly Modern Millie. Knowlson meets those demands without being demanding.
