Darrel Ashford has a few reasons to celebrate. Not only was he and his wife, Tana, named the outstanding Duncan Little Theatre volunteers for the 2012-13 season during Saturday’s Limelight Awards, he won Best Director for "I'm Getting Murdered In The Morning" which also won Best Production.
And as he received the awards, Ashford gave credit to his cast instead of himself. This was his first attempt at directing, and “Murdered” was a rare dinner theater for DLT.
“This doesn’t belong to me,” Ashford said, as he accepted the Best Production award. “This belongs to my cast. It was a great production.”
