The 67th Annual Chanticleer Awards

Weathervane's Annual Volunteer-Recognition Event!
The Chanticleer Awards are Weathervane's version of the Tony Awards — but combined with the populist spirit of the People's Choice Awards!

Weathervane's friends and supporters will gather at the Playhouse on Saturday, Aug. 25, 2018, for a very special night to honor the Playhouse's volunteers — both on stage and behind the scenes — for their commitment, time and talents given during the 2017-2018 season.

And YOU -- if YOU have seen the shows in our 2017-2018 season -- can cast your votes for such categories as best actor, best actress, best production and many other awards, too!


You are eligible to vote if you have seen the following 2017-2018 season productions:

Emerging Artist Series
Disney's The Little Mermaid
A Christmas Carol: The Musical

The Mainstage Series
It's Only a Play
Young Frankenstein
Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill
It Shoulda Been You
Les Liaisons Dangereuses
Into the Woods
