TNT noted that Stage West’s commitment to producing new works on its main stage and through playwriting festivals such as the Southwest Playwriting Competition and the Neighborhood Play Contest is noteworthy. The extensive work with young people in the development of new works is exemplary.
Inductees are added every two years, and Stage West is honored to be in this third class of awardees. The award was presented during the TNT Annual Conference and Fort Worth Fringe Fest on March 18 & 19, 2016 in Fort Worth.
