While Mimi will be making her debut as the show’s announcer, she is no stranger to the Kelsey Theatre stage.

Honoring the best of the 2016-2017 Kelsey Theatre season, the awards will be handed out in an August 19th ceremony at 7pm inside The Kelsey Theatre in West Windsor, New Jersey.

Scheduled performances at the ceremony include the  musicals nominated for Outstanding Productions of a Musical (“In The Heights”, “Miss Saigon”, “The Boy From Oz”, “Anything Goes”, “The Little Mermaid”), the casts of the upcoming productions of “Memphis” and “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”, along with the recent production of “42nd Street”. The ceremony also features some special surprise performances, cameos, and presentations that commemorate the 2016-2017 Kelsey Theatre season.
