Shea’s 710 theatre

710 Main Street

Buffalo NY 14202

 

Masks are NOT REQUIRED but HIGHLY ENCOURAGED out of respect for your fellow thespians who are currently in rehearsals or live performances. Thank you for your consideration.

The Artie Awards began in 1991 and are held each year to celebrate Western New York's Theatre Community. To be eligible for an Artie, an artist must live and work in the Buffalo area, while a theater must produce work locally, primarily with local artists.

The event is an opportunity to recognize Western New York’s theater arts, as well as, raise funds for the HIV/AIDS & Immunodeficiency Clinic at ECMC. Over the years, through contributions from theatre audiences and proceeds from red ribbon sales, the Arties have raised over $500,000 for AIDS-related charities.
