Cheers for Local Theater

The always-entertaining Cloris Leachman Excellence in Theatre Arts Awards program is Sunday, Aug. 27, at Hoyt Sherman Place. Starting at 6:30 p.m., this annual program celebrates outstanding contributions to locally produced theater. The program will include several musical numbers from shows produced in the past year by local theater companies. Awards are presented in a number of onstage and behind-the-scenes categories, including acting, directing and design.

 This year’s ceremony will be hosted by two local theater veterans and broadcast personalities—Maxwell Schaeffer of KIOA radio and Jackie Schmillen of KCWI-TV. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online here.
