And The Valley Theatre Award Winners Are…

The 2017 Valley Theatre Awards were hosted by Theatre 68 artistic director Ronnie Marmo on Monday, June 5, 2017 at Cupcake Theatre in the NoHo Arts District.

The third annual gala was an evening to enjoy food and wine, fun performances, meet Valley theatre folks and a time to acknowledge and award the “best artists” on this side of the hill.

The Valley Theatre Awards was created to bring recognition to the great work being done in the NoHo Arts District and San Fernando Valley, to honor its artistic heritage, and to provide a meeting ground for this extensive community.

The Awards focus on intimate theatre and recognizes the unique and essential role it plays in contributing to our culture. We believe that publicly recognizing excellence in intimate theater will expand audience awareness and appreciation of a wonderful theatre experience in our community.

Congratulations to those who took home an award. The biggest award is being part of this community.
