The Fredericksburg Theater Company (FTC) recently announced its recognition as the Theater of the Decade (2010-2020) in the San Antonio region by BroadwayWorld. com Awards.

The award is voted on by theatergoers in the surrounding Texas Hill Country area. FTC was one of many theaters eligible for the award.

“We are very proud to be recognized by the fans of live theater in this region,” said Executive Director Steve Reily. “Typically, every year, our audience attendance and community support has increased. This year was a challenge due to the coronavirus pandemic. Despite numerous obstacles, we have been able to push ahead with our 24th season.

“Attendance has been strong and audiences have been very receptive to the artistic quality of our work. It is thanks to our hard-working staff, dedicated volunteers, and talented artists that we were able to earn this recognition. We are very fortunate to produce works in Fredericksburg, where the community has an immense appreciation for the arts,” Reily said.

Several other artists who have worked with FTC were also recognized for their work this past decade. The full list of award winners may be found online at broadwayworld.com/san-antonio
