from our friends at the Zonis:

Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient

The Zoni Board is pleased to announce that the ariZoni Theatre Awards of Excellence will be posthumously awarding an ariZoni Lifetime Achievement Award to Joy Bingham Strimple. 
She is being recognized for her dedication both onstage and off, directing, acting, producing and supporting theatre across the Valley.
Many will remember her as the driving force behind Arizona Women's Theatre and the Pandora Festival.

Kyle Lawson Outstanding Contribution Award

The Zoni Board is pleased to announce the recipient of this year's Kyle Lawson Outstanding Contribution Award as United Colours of Arizona Theatre.

This award honors an individual or organization from within the theatre community who has served in a profound way through personal investment of time, energy, vision and talent.

UCAT's mission states:
The United Colours of Arizona Theatre is gathered with the commitment to strengthen our Fine Arts network through diversity and awareness. Our goal is to create a powerful learning community centered specifically on sharpening our skill set in hopes to saturate the theatre community with qualified candidates of color, and increase casting ability. Our purpose is to ensure all stories within the human condition are properly represented. We have a shared commitment to performance excellence, while also petitioning fairness, representation, and inclusion.

Congratulations, UCAT!

Excellence in Stage Management Award

The Zoni Board has announced Justin Peterson as the recipient of this year's Award of Excellence in Stage Management. 

Justin was nominated by Hale Centre Theatre, who stated, "We are so grateful for Justin's hard work and dedication that has helped to make the shows great. He doesn't always get the recognition from the public that he deserves. We hope he knows how grateful we are to him."

This award honors a stage, company or production manager within our theatre community who has gone above and beyond their job duties, throughout the course of their body of work. The individual truly exemplifies the best qualities of a stage manager: patience, diplomacy, organization and a sense of humor.

Congratulations Justin!
