TheatreWorks New Milford recently attended the CultureMAX Awards at the Warner Theatre in Torrington to accept its award for #1 Cultural Organization in the region.

The Northwest Connecticut Arts Council's CultureMAX Award recognizes artists of all disciplines: arts educators, heritage workers, cultural organizations, volunteers, and businesses that have elevated the stature of arts and/or heritage within the region of northwest Connecticut.

It is awarded to individuals and businesses who exemplify excellence in the cultural field or in serving the cultural community within the Council’s 25-town service area.

“This recognition means a lot to all of us and we’re so grateful to those who nominated us, to Northwest Connecticut Arts Council and to everyone who donates their time and talents to TheatreWorks New Milford,” said Christine Daley, President of TheatreWorks.

“We are thrilled to be celebrating our 50th anniversary season this year, and reaffirm our commitment to showcasing talented performers of all ages, shapes, sizes, ethnicities, and stages of development, teaching them the art of creating live theater and bringing the joy of its creation to our community,” she said.

Earlier this year, TheatreWorks also received Connecticut Magazine's "Best Small Theater in Connecticut 2017" Award.
