Fountain Hills Theater Hands Out Prizm Awards

Fountain Hills Theater Hands Out Prizm Awards

Fountain Hills Theater is excited to announce the winners of the 2017-2018 Prizm Awards. Awards were presented at the Annual Fountain Hills Volunteer Appreciation Night, attended by FHT cast, crew, and volunteers.

The Prizm Awards are presented annually by The Fountain Hills Theater for excellence in acting, design and direction. The awards are voted upon by FHT's Season subscribers. The Annual Fountain Hills Volunteer Appreciation Night has become a celebration, party and reunion night for actors and crew, as well as designers, musicians and staff. Also honored are volunteers who have gone above and beyond in service to the theater. To call the awards show 'less than formal' would be an understatement. Though the awards themselves are highly coveted and treated with respect, the evening's entertainment usually pokes gentle fun at FHT, staffers and everyone involved in getting an entire season of shows on the boards.

Fountain Hills Theater would like to thank Donna Beers, Daniel Fecteau, Carol Russell Coates, and Pat Druckman for helping with the reception and Patty and Benoit Torrilhon for the video presentation of the 2017-2018 season.

Congratulations to the 2017-2018 Prizm Award recipients:

ABOUT FOUNTAIN HILLS THEATER

Fountain Hills Theater presents 3 regularly scheduled seasons of productions in their two theaters. The Theater's year-round offering includes Mainstage, Mainstage Too!, and Youth productions. Additionally, special events, community outreach, and educational arts programming for our youth is also offered. The Mainstage (often called the "big") theater seats 130 and is devoted to medium and large-scale popular musicals and plays including the best of Broadway and Off-Broadway. No seat is more than 35 feet from the stage. The Youth/Mainstage Too! (also called the "little" theater) is a smaller, more intimate 90-seat, thrust style auditorium that offers thought-provoking, inspiring and sometimes challenging productions including Broadway musicals, original plays, musicals, and art works. Most of the youth productions are performed in the more intimate, smaller theater. Both stages often run productions concurrently. Special events are offered throughout the season on both stages as well as in community centers. The Theater has been in operation as a professionally-directed community theater for over 30 years. The Mission of Fountain Hills Theater is: Engage, inspire, entertain and challenge diverse audiences with innovative productions that range from the classics to new works; train and support our youth as the next generation of artists; and celebrate the essential power of the performing arts. The Theater is 100% funded by ticket sales and donations. Volunteer opportunities are available. Fountain Hills Theater is located at 11445 N. Saguaro Blvd., Fountain Hills, AZ 85268. Phone: 480.837.9661. Fax: 480.837.5972. The Box Office is open Tues.-Fri., 12pm-5pm and Sat. 10am-5pm (closed Sun. and Mon.). The website is fhtaz.org.
