The 2020 St. Louis Theater Circle Awards

    The 2020 St. Louis Theater Circle Awards honors outstanding achievements in locally produced professional theater in the year 2019. There are 120 productions in contention for 33 awards.
    Due to the national health situation, this ceremony couldn’t be presented as it normally would be. But as they say, “the show must go on!” That’s why the members of the St. Louis Theater Circle joined HEC Host Rod Milam from their homes to present this year’s many outstanding honorees.
