Jeff Awards Welcomes Public to Scenic Design Panel Discussion on January 29th

The Jeff Awards meeting on January 29, 2018, at the Greenhouse Theatre in Chicago, Ilinois, will include a discussion on excellence in scenic design with three multiple Jeff Award Scenic Design recipients: Jacqueline Penrod, Jeff Kmiec, and Kevin Depinet. The public is invited, and attendance is free. Please email reservation requests to chair@ jeffawards.org. Seating is limited.

As part of its continuing theatre education program for Jeff members and the public, the Jeff Awards hosts panel discussions on excellence in judging categories. Following the moderated discussion, a question and answer period will take place. The program lasts about an hour. The panel discussions are recorded, and made available on the Jeff website www.jeffawards.org and on YouTube. Videos of previous panel discussions also are available on the website and on YouTube.

The January 29, 2018, program will begin at 7:30pm at the Greenhouse, 2248 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago, Illinois. The regular Jeff Awards meeting for members will follow after a short break following the panel discussion.

The Jeff Awards has been honoring outstanding theatre artists annually since it was established in 1968. With up to 55 members representing a wide variety of backgrounds in theatre (including producers, directors, actors, playwrights, designers, professors of theatre, entertainment lawyers and agents and theatre lovers), the Jeff Awards is committed to celebrating the vitality of Chicago area theatre by recognizing excellence through its recommendations, awards and honors. Opening night judges include not only Jeff members but also the team of arts and technical theatre volunteers (the "A/T Team") which is comprised of artistic directors, producers, directors from major Chicago theatres, actors and designers. The Jeff Awards fosters the artistic growth of area theatres and theatre artists and promotes educational opportunities, audience appreciation and civic pride in the achievements of the theatre community. Each year, the Jeff Awards judges 300 theatrical productions and host two awards ceremonies. Originally chartered to recognize only Equity productions, the Jeff Awards established the Non-Equity Wing in 1973 to celebrate outstanding achievement in non-union theatre.
