JAG Productions has had quite a year, and we’re honored to show up on their 2017 best nine. 🙂
Jarvis Antonio Green, founder of JAG Productions, posted these photos from his trip to Connecticut this weekend to accept this year’s Regional Award for Outstanding Achievement in the American Theatre from the New England Theatre Conference.
From a Valley News report earlier this month:
The award recognizes JAG Productions, which recently rounded off its inaugural season, for pursuing theatrical excellence and for its contributions to the New England arts scene. The New England Theatre Conference, a Hamden, Conn.-based nonprofit industry group, presents this award each year as part of its mission to support and celebrate American theater.
Furthermore, the theater company — the first black theater company in the Upper Valley which aims to be the first black LORT theater in the country — is in the second stage of a three-part fundraising drive.
Thanks for sharing your photos, Jarvis! Congratulations.
