Congratulations to Professor Efren Delgadillo Jr. on his Barrymore Awards nomination for his outstanding scenic work on ¡Bienvenidos Blancos! or Welcome White People!, produced by Team Sunshine Performance Corporation. 

Named in honor of the famed Philadelphia-based first family of theatre, the Barrymore Awards for Excellence in Theatre have served as Philadelphia's professional theatre awards program since 1994. The Barrymore Awards are a nationally recognized symbol of excellence for professional theatre, raising the bar for the work produced by local theatres and individual artists while increasing public awareness of the richness and diversity of Philadelphia's thriving theatre community. The Barrymore Awards also include annual cash awards totaling over $75,000, which strengthen the ability of theatre companies and individual artists to pursue artistic work of the highest caliber. Each fall, theatre goers and artists come together to celebrate the theatre season and honor that year's Barrymore nominees and award recipients at the annual Barrymore Awards Ceremony.

Winners will be announced at the 23rd annual Barrymore ceremony, this year on Nov. 5th at the Bok Building in South Philadelphia. Tickets are available to the general public through Theatre Philadelphia .
