New York Film Academy Faculty Wins L.A. Weekly Theatre Award Nominations
Just announced this morning, the L.A. Weekly Theater Awards honored New York Film Academy faculty members Giovanni Ortega and Maria Gobetti with nominations.
Technique and scene study instructor Maria Gobetti garnered a nomination for her leading role in Sex and Education at the Victory Theatre Center. The acclaimed actress is also the artistic director and co-founder of the Victory, and was featured on the L.A. Stage Times website last summer.
Movement instructor Giovanni Ortega, who we profiled on the NYFA blog in December, was nominated for Best Ensemble for The Romance of Magno Rubio, the award-winning play that opened the 2011/2012 season at Los Angeles’ historic Ford Amphitheatre. The production also racked up nominations for Leading Male Performance, Choreography, and Direction.
Giovanni will also be working with Kayamanan Ng Lahi Philippine Folk Arts at the Getty Center on Saturday, March 17 and Sunday, March 18 as part of the Sounds of L.A. concert series.
The 33rd annual L.A. Weekly Theater Awards will be held at the Avalon in Hollywood on April 2. Congratulations to our New York Film Academy Acting instructors!
