Production Managers, Technical Staff, Marketing Directors, Box Office staff, Volunteers--we need and honor them all!

The seventh annual LOWT OFFSTAGE HONORS will be held on Monday, June21, from 5 to 7pm at Woolly Mammoth Theatre, 641 D Street, NWWashingtonDC to honor the special staff, board members, and volunteers who make what's on stage possible.  Each LOWT member organization is invited to honor a member of their staff whose exemplary contribution “off-stage” has gone above and beyond. Honorees might come from front of house, box office, administration, stage management or backstage crew, or even volunteers.   Since 2004, over 120 individuals have been honored for their work in support of Washington theatres.

Here are the 2010 Offstage Award Honorees.

"We all know that the people offstage, everyone from resident staff to stage managers, are often the heart and soul of our organizations, giving their time, expertise and hard work in support of the artistic process without the spotlight of recognition," said LOWT President, David Snider.  "Join us in honoring these unsung heroes of DC theatre, who have made and continue to make DC one of the most exciting, vital and productive theatre communities in the nation and the world."

The evening will be an informal cocktail party held at Woolly Mammoth Theatre where each honoree will be announced and will receive an award. This event is open to honorees, their guests, selected theatre-media, and individual staff members, board, and volunteers of LOWT member organizations and friends of the theatre community. The cost for individuals is $5 at the door and includes tasty hors d'oeuvres; there will be a cash bar.
