The South Florida Theatre League Announces The Return Of The Remy Awards

The South Florida Theatre League is excited to announce the return of the Remy Awards in 2018. The Remy Awards, named in honor of Remberto Cabrera, the former Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs' Senior Cultural Administrator and Chief of Cultural Development, are given to the unsung heroes who provide outstanding service behind the scenes of the South Florida Theatre League Community.

For 2018, the Awards will be presented as part of an evening fundraiser for the South Florida Theatre League at Fantasy Theatre Factory at the Sandrell Rivers Theatre in Miami. The evening will begin with a reception, where industry members and audience members can mingle and enjoy light refreshments and partake in a silent auction. The evening will progress with performances by Eytan Deray, Casey Dressler, Sabrina Gore, and Villain Theater, with Theatre League Board member Vanessa Elise as the master of ceremonies. After the performances, the awards will be presented.

The Remy Awards have been a part of the South Florida Theatre League since its first year (1994) - with the Service Award dedicated to those who have provided outstanding service to the League and the Pioneer Award dedicated to those who have changed the landscape of South Florida Theatre. In 2014 the Board of the League made the decision to increase the number of categories to honor the breadth of those in our community whose contributions are often overlooked.

After much debate and research the Board of Directors of the South Florida Theatre League unanimously decided that there will be no Civic Arts Leadership Award given this year. This decision reflects the League's - and the entire Florida Cultural Community's - concern and dismay regarding the Florida Legislature's drastic 89% cut to Arts funding in the state.

Tickets for the 2018 Remy Awards event are $10 and are available from the Fantasy Theatre Factory website. https://tickets.ftfshows.com/TheatreManager/1/tmEvent/tmEvent218.html
Fantasy Theatre Factory at the Sandrell Rivers Theatre is located at 6103 NW 7th Ave, Miami, FL 33127.

The South Florida Theatre League is an alliance of theatrical organizations and professionals dedicated to nurturing, promoting, and advocating for the growth and prestige of the South Florida theatre industry.
