We are thrilled to announce the following FINALISTS for the 38th Drammy Awards, to be held on Monday, June 27, 2016, at the Newmark Theatre. The ceremony starts at 7 pm, and the bar and lobby will be open beforehand.

In addition to the Drammy awards themselves, PATA will as usual be presenting Spotlight Awards, and the Portland Civic Theatre Guild will be presenting the Fulton Fellowship for an established artist, the Portland Civic Theatre Award in support of a theatre company, and the Mary Brand Award for support of theatre education for young people. New this year will be the presentation of the AGE in the Arts Awards presented by Age and Gender Equity in the Arts (AGE).

A special request to the companies representing these productions, artists, and practitioners: please send FINALISTS photos to us at drammyawards@gmail.com as soon as possible so that we can prepare our finalists/winners slide show. One photo per finalist, with the photographer credit, would be fantastic! Many thanks.
