June & Steve Wolfson Award

The June and Steve Wolfson Award for an Evolving Theatre Company recognizes, promotes, and rewards the creativity, growth, and excellence of evolving theatres within the Greater Philadelphia community. The award is intended to help foster interaction within the theatre community, increase the community's richness and diversity, and focus public awareness and accessibility to the most vibrant professional theatre community in the nation. Generously funded by the June and Steve Wolfson Family Foundation, this special Barrymore Award includes a $10,000 cash prize for the recipient.

UPDATE: Many of our Barrymore supporters are reaching out to help the community now, at a time when so many are in need. At this time, we will temporarily suspend applications for the F. Otto Haas Award, the June and Steve Wolfson Award, the Brown Martin Philadelphia Award, and the Victory Foundation Award. Applications that have been submitted for these awards will be filed and kept for consideration as soon as we have determined how the Barrymore Celebration will move forward. Theatre Philadelphia Emergency Relief includes contributions from the CHG Charitable Trust, the June and Steve Wolfson Family Foundation, and the Victory Foundation, who also provide support to Theatre Philadelphia’s Barrymore program. Information about this program is available at www.theatrephiladelphia.org/emergencyrelief.
