The 2016-2017 ARTIE AWARD nominations, recognizing excellence in theater in Buffalo, have been announced over a week in advance of the 27th Annual event to be held on Monday June 5, 2017 at Shea’s 710 Theatre. The Red Carpet/Bar opens at 7:00 p.m. and the on-stage ceremony begins at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 at the door and proceeds from the ARTIE AWARDS (plus annual collections this spring at participating theaters) will benefit the Erie County Medical Center Immunodeficiency Services.
