14th Annual Theater Awards (“Artsies”) Winners Announced

The 14th annual Richmond Theatre Community Circle Awards (“Artsies”), formerly known as the Richmond Theatre Critics Circle Awards, took place last weekend with a theme of “We’re Still Here” reflecting the resilience of local arts and arts organizations that made it through a global pandemic.

The Artsies are the primary fundraising event for the Theatre Artist Fund of Greater Richmond (Fund), which provides emergency financial assistance to theater artists and has raised nearly $90,000 for the fund during its history — while writing 21 grants worth $30,468 for artists in need, according to a press release.
