Readers looking for yet another example of the power of social networking need look no further than Sam Goodwin.
The local actor has two theater credits to his name: the gym teacher in UM’s The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and Gravedigger #2 in UM’s Hamlet. A Facebook page titled “Sam Goodwin for Best Actor” was allegedly put together by one of Goodwin’s friends to campaign for his win. And it worked. Now, we’re not saying Goodwin isn’t deserving. But clearly this is a matter where Facebook savvy trumps all. Coming in second place by a mere handful of votes was Jeff Medley, who played Fagin in MCT Community Theatre's 2009 production of Oliver and filled key roles in the Montana Actors’ Theatre productions of Rocky Horror Show and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
