On Monday eve November 16, we celebrated our shared commitment to impassioned storytelling with the larger Bay Area theatre community. We found ourselves on stage in an actual theatre for the first time…well…ever! And what a beautiful playhouse ACT’s Geary Theatre is. Ava and Cole Ferraiuolo, the young Artistic Director of Faultline Theatre, presented awards together and shared the stage with many other directors from around the region. Musical theatre folks shared song and dance routines and several important Legacy Awards were presented, including to the late, great Mark Rucker, whom we all honor and miss.

We’re especially pleased to celebrate Brooke Jennings and Nathaniel Justiniano, award recipients in their finalist categories. Three cheers!
