The stars will be shining brightly on November 14th at the historic Lyric Theatre in downtown Stuart! The mARTies Committee is so excited to move the annual event to this venue which is so important to our cultural community. The evening’s show is being produced by Heidi Condon with support from Kristal Wion Eckhardt, aka Captain Hook. The student performers, all nominees, are in rehearsals to bring to you a night you won’t forget! They are creating unique performances just for the mARTies and partnering to do so.
The mARTies co-chairs, Lisa Renee Ludlum and Marney McKee, invite you to join them at the Lyric to applaud the nominees and named awards recipients. Consider starting the evening early and be a part of the VIP reception held at our newest downtown locale, Café Martier. The inclusive tickets (VIP and awards performance) are $75 via the Lyric’s website. A limited number of VIP tickets are available. Planning for the VIP party are the artistic duo, Ken Hooper-Capozzi and Barb Bucci. Don’t be surprised to find paparazzi lurking near the entrance of the Lyric just waiting to snap your photo! Camera-ready Liz McKinley is the official photographer for the night.
The mARTies Awards is a signature event produced by the Arts Foundation for Martin County to support the Arts Council, Inc. Student recipients will receive scholarships to support their bright futures in the arts! Committee member, Sharon Hagin is coordinating the review of the nominees. Students are interviewed in addition to submitting documents for the esteemed judges to consider. All Named Award recipients will be recognized during the evening as will our nominees. Following in the footsteps of famous awards events, we will announce the recipients of our nominated categories during the mARTies!
Excited to be a part of a wonderful night? Perhaps you’d even like to support our efforts? Katie Gianni, Terri Pettengill, and Laura Daniel are working to delight our sponsors, call 772.287.6676 today to get in on the fun!
