The Connecticut Critics Circle Awards will hold its 27th annual free event Monday, June 11 at the Westport Country Playhouse -- but we need your help.

The not-for-profit organization wants to keep the the show, that celebrates the best of the state's professional theaters, a free and open-to-the-public event but costs have increased over the years. 

On Friday, March 1 is Fairfield County Foundation Giving Day and money to the CCC through this fundraising template will go directly for awards to give out to theater artists and for expenses incurred in the ceremony.

Please circle the day and give as generously as you can. Over the last few years, the event has become a terrific event for theater lovers to gather, celebrate the season and applaud the wonderful work that occurs on the state's many stages.

On March 1st the donation form on the following website will go live: https://fcgives.org/designee/connecticut-critics-circle

Please help us reward the many great regional theater artists who have given their lives to the theater. In many cases, this is their only venue to take such an honored bow.
