St. Genesius Awards

Join us as we celebrate this years honorees at our annual Gala this June.

Since 2018, Open Stage has honored artists & volunteers with the Saint Genesius Award, in recognition of outstanding dedication to the theatre. The theatre looks forward to honoring dedicated board members and volunteers and loyal artists who have gone above and beyond in the season to create great art. In addition to an engraved hourglass award, the honorees are gifted a St. Genesius medal. St. Genesius is the patron saint of actors, but the charm is a lucky charm for theatre people when it is gifted. 

Thank you to all of our honorees
