2021 Awards of Excellence Update:

Recognizing the need for safety of our board members, our member theatres, and their patrons, the ICTA Board of Directors has suspended the Awards of Excellence for 2021. We understand that each theatre faces different challenges based on their size, patronage, budget, and facility – which means some theatres may be able to return to production sooner than others. In order to remain equitable to all member theatres and maintain a level field of competition, the Awards of Excellence will be on hold for all of 2021 – which means no submissions for review will be accepted and no reviews will be performed. With the hopeful news of successful vaccines, we hope to return fully to the Awards of Excellence in 2022.
