EMAV Presents the 2017 Valley Theatre Awards: and the Nominees Are...



There is a lot to celebrate about the 2016/2017 Las Vegas Theatre Season, and it's almost time to come together and do just that! Jacob Coakley founded the Las Vegas Valley Theatre Award program in 2013, in order to help the community identify and promote the best of locally-produced Las Vegas theatre. The Valley Awards were acquired by EatMoreArtVegas.com earlier this Spring upon Mr. Coakley's departure, and now we are pleased to announce the nominees!

The Valley Theatre Awards show, honoring 20 categories of achievement, will take place Tuesday, July 25th at The Space LV, and is open to the public. Tickets to the event are $10. An announcement regarding how to get them will be coming soon!
