ABOUT THE SONDHEIM AWARD GALA

Signature’s annual Sondheim Award Gala honors those who have contributed to the works of Stephen Sondheim and the canon of American musical theater. The Sondheim Award Gala benefits Signature’s artistic, education, and community outreach programs.

The Gala takes place at the Embassy of Italy in Washington, DC, and is a festive evening that includes cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a gourmet seated dinner, and a delicious dessert buffet. Each year, the honoree receives a special award presentation that includes tribute performances by notable Broadway and Signature artists.

The J. Watkins Distinguished Service Award honors community leaders who have made an extraordinary impact in the greater DC community through their passion and advocacy for the arts and arts education. The award is made in memory of J. Watkins, a long time Signature Board Member, an important part of the Sondheim Award Gala leadership team, and a tremendous ambassador for Signature and the arts in our community.
