Established in 1989, The Ovation Awards were established to celebrate artistic excellence in theatre production, design and performance and to bring attention to the Greater Los Angeles theater community. The LA Stage Alliance Ovation Awards are the only peer-judged theater awards in Los Angeles. Labeled the “…highest-profile contest for local theatre…” by the Los Angeles Times, the Ovation Awards present an opportunity for the theater community to join together and focus public attention on the area’s rich and lively performing arts scene. Another goal of the program is to draw national attention to the quality and quantity of professional theater in Los Angeles.
The Ovation Awards season runs from Sept. 1 to Aug. 31 each year and culminates in a black-tie awards ceremony. The next ceremony is scheduled to take place Nov. 14, 2011, at The Orpheum Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles.
