There just isn't enough room in reviews to highlight all the fine work that is presented on Austin stages year-round. I also try to catch a few shows each year just for the fun of it, when there's no opportunity to tell readers what I've seen. Imagine, please, that I am raising a year-end glass to all the artists mentioned below, in no particular order.

1) LUCIEN DOUGLAS AS WALTER FLOOD IN 'BECKY'S NEW CAR' (ZACH THEATRE)

2) PAUL DAVIS' SET DESIGN FOR 'VIGIL' (HYDE PARK THEATRE)

3) KIM ADAMS AS JAINA IN 'THE VIRGIN W/ 10,000 ARROWS' (DEBUTANTES & VAGABONDS)

4) GABRIEL LUNA AS THE LOVER IN 'MACHINAL' (PAPER CHAIRS)

5) JUDE HICKEY AS PETER IN 'AT HOME AT THE ZOO' (PALINDROME THEATRE)

6) JACOB TRUSSELL AS THE TITLE CHARACTER IN 'PEER GYNT' (MARY MOODY NORTHEN THEATRE)

7) KAREN JAMBON'S DIRECTION OF 'EURYDICE' (DIFFERENT STAGES)

8) KELLI BLAND'S SEAMLESS ENSEMBLE PERFORMANCE IN 'BAAL' AFTER SUDDENLY FINDING HERSELF ON CRUTCHES EARLIER THAT DAY (PAPER CHAIRS)

9) BRIAN VILLALOBOS AS JOHN PROCTOR IN 'THE CRUCIBLE' (CITY THEATRE COMPANY)
