Bentonâ€™s Royal players celebrated the end of its 2011-12 season with its fourth annual awards program â€” the Ben-Tonys â€” on Saturday night.
"Nobody's Business," an original play by Benton physician Sam Taggart, was the big winner for the year.
The play â€” written, produced and directed by Taggart â€” won Ben-Tonys for best show and best director and tied for best set with the Neil Simon comedy "Barefoot in the Park."
