The Hawaii State Theatre Council has added two winners to the list of Po'okela Award recipients announced Monday night

Two winners were missed on Monday: John Rampage for choreography in Diamond Head Theatre's "Gigi" and Jamie Rolfsmeyer for Featured Female in a Musical for Manoa Valley Theatre's "Urinetown."
Rampage now has two choreography awards (he also won for MVT's "She Loves Me").
