The 19th Annual Festival kicks off with the traditional Champagne Gala and Awards Ceremony on Thursday, March 22nd at 7 pm at the Electric Lodge in Venice, CA. This year we are thrilled to feature performances from Florence La Rue in Just As I Am: Ms. La Rue, a founding member of the legendary pop vocal group The Fifth Dimension, gives a glimpse into the life of the woman, not the celebrity; Ingrid Graham in Eagle Woman: an emblematic dance which represents spirit, majesty and the ability to soar to new heights; Marisa Johnson in My Own Way: A woman expresses through song her victory over sexual assault; and Tia Matza in My M.O.: Through poetry, a trapeze artist is freed from some of life's challenges.
Opening the Gala and introducing the hosts is veteran theater, film and television actor, Roger Guenveur Smith (Obie Award winner for his signature solo performance in "A Huey P. Newton Story"). Hosts for the Gala are Hattie Winston ("Becker," "Homefront") and Ted Lange (a frequent actor and director on local stages also known for his long run on "The Love Boat" TV series).
This year's theme for the evening is "A Night Divine", honoring exceptional women who have made laudable contributions in theatre. Awardees will be announced on March 8 so stay tuned.
