The 2020 Helen Hayes Awards
About The 2020 Helen Hayes Awards
The 2020 Helen Hayes Awards will recognize the outstanding work on Washington-area stages in 2019, reflect on this unprecedented time in our industry, and gather our full community in virtual spaces. Co-hosted by Washington stage luminaries Felicia Curry and Naomi Jacobson, the virtual event on September 25 will include award announcements, remembrances, special guest appearances, & fun surprises. Even though it’s virtual, it’s the Helen Hayes Awards–you never know what will happen! During this season, theatreWashington is raising money for the Taking Care COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund. Started in March 2020, the Fund provides grants to theater professionals in need during the near shutdown of our industry. We have a gift of $25,000–from generous donors–to be matched by the community, raising $50,000. When you opt to donate with your registration to the Helen Hayes Awards, your donation (minus credit card fees) goes to the Taking Care COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund community match.
