The following is excerpted from a communication issued by the GVPTA.
Nominations are being accepted by the GVPTA for two annual awards for local individuals/organizations that have made considerable contributions to the local theatre industry:
The Patron of the Arts Award recognizes outstanding contribution to theatre, not as a practitioner but as an integral supporter that advances the ecology through their dedicated support and contribution of expertise or resources. Nominee could be an individual, organization or business; and
The GVPTA Career Achievement Award recognizes an individual's exemplary commitment to the theatre and an elevating impact on the industry.
The nomination deadline for both awards is 5:00 p.m., Tuesday, May 7, 2019. Nominations are reviewed for consideration by a jury consisting of members of the theatre community.
