Transcendence Theatre Company, producer of the “Broadway Under the Stars in Jack London State Park” concert series, has won the Broadway World San Francisco Award for “Theater of the Year,” as well as “Best Special Theater Event,” “Best Production for Youth” and “Best Choreographer” for their 2013 season.
Broadway World is the world’s largest theater site on the Internet and honors the theatrical arts in many communities across the U.S.
TTC Artistic Director Amy Miller said, “We are so grateful to the community of Sonoma and the entire Bay Area for embracing our company. We share all of these honors with the amazing patrons, volunteers, supporters, and artists that brought Transcendence Theatre to life. The future is so bright!”
In addition to winning the awards, the 2013 season was a wonderful success in attracting over 11,000 attendees raising more than $40,000 for Jack London State Historic Park, Miller added.
