"The Kelsey Awards are a seminal event - one of the biggest theater celebrations in the region," said Kyrus Keenan Westcott, producer and director of the virtual ceremony. "Our Kelsey Theatre community look toward this show every year for signature moments, reunions, laughs, and memories. Recognizing the unique role The Kelsey Awards play for so many, and the challenging times we find ourselves in, we know it was more important than ever to deliver The Kelsey Awards in 2020."
"For the past eleven years, The Kelsey Awards have paid homage to all things now and relevant," said Haley Schmalbach, host of this year's live ceremony. "Despite the challenges of today, we plan on delivering a show filled with larger than life, inspiring, empowering and entertaining moments, which have shown the magic of the New Jersey theatre community for over a decade."
