Stage Raw Awards

StageRawTheaterAwards1st ANNUAL

Celebration Theatre co-presents the first-ever Stage Raw Theater Awards, picking up where the L.A. Weekly Theater Awards left off last year, honoring the best work in L.A.’s theaters of up to 99-seats. It’s no secret that many of these theaters, and the quality of the work they produce, are now embattled by pending policies proposed by Actors Equity Association. The first-ever Stage Raw Theater Awards will be a party to celebrate what L.A.’s intimate theater does so well on its hundreds of local stages. Alec Mapa and Parvesh Cheena co-host. Catering by Kimchi. For more information and to RSVP, go to
