You are invited you to a reception introducing the winners on Saturday, September 29, 2018. It will be held at William and Jan Boughton’s beautiful barn on Little Meadow Road in Guilford, starting at 6:30 p.m.

We’ll introduce the two winners, one in Drama and one in Music, offer light bites and wine, provide some entertainment and give you an update on the 2019 festival. We’re in the process of lining up our marquee acts, and we’re very excited about how the conversations are going.

Tickets are $50 per person. Seating is extremely limited, so get your reservations in as soon as you can. Send checks, payable to GPAF, to Guilford Performing Arts Festival, 316 Little Meadow Road, Guilford, Connecticut, 06437. Hope to see you there!

Much appreciation goes to the Guilford Foundation, which helped us create the awards. They’re intended to encourage the development of new work by professional Connecticut artists and provide a vehicle for the debut of original material at the 2019 festival. The winners’ works will be performed in full for the first time at next year’s festival, scheduled for September 2019.
