We are less than 6 weeks away from The Evies! Sponsored by the Gail Asper Family Foundation, The Winnipeg Foundation and Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries, The Evies will take place on November 2nd as a broadcast.

Today we announce the recipients of the Honorary Awards.

“In our COVID-19 isolation, the joy of being able to celebrate those in our community who have contributed so much to our art form is a lovely prospect” said Donna Fletcher, Chair of the Honorary Awards Committee. “The honorary awards are all about celebrating long-term commitment to the Winnipeg theatre community; the sung and unsung stalwarts who have given so much to our art form.”
