2015-16 Hobo Awards
October 8, 2016

It's that time! We'll be tallying the votes for the best of the season at Theatre Downtown, and at our big awards shindig, you can find out who won! Join us for a pre-show reception at 7:00pm, then see the awards start getting presented at 8:00. We'll request a modest $5 for entry, just so we can keep the lights on, and we'll accept cash donations for food and beverages. We'll have 2 sets of awards: our juried awards and our audience choice awards. Categories include: Production, Director, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Cameo, Ensemble, and a special set of awards for the best production, director, actor, and actress in our short plays (All in the Timing). Hope to see you there!

Long before she was the mascot of your favorite local brewery, Miss Fancy was an elephant that lived in the Avondale Zoo. This is the story of this magnificent elephant, and her equally magnificent trainer Mr. Todd and the story of their relationship, and how they would forever change each other's lives. A true story based in Birmingham during the early 20th Century, written by a local author. Don't miss out on the WORLD PREMIERE of this touching play.
