The annual Artie Awards, which honors the best of Buffalo theater, isn't just an excuse to get dressed up for a fun night on the town. It also serves a greater purpose and this year, that purpose was to raise funds for ECMC's HIV/AIDS and Immunodeficiency Clinic.

This year's Artie Awards nominations were announced Monday. The Arties began in 1991 and are held each year to celebrate Western New York's theatre community.

With five venues, settled in a quaint town with plenty of walk-to attractions, the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, continues to attract a sizeable audience from Buffalo. Anthony Chase reports in during the intermission of "Peter and the Starcatcher" at the Royal George Theatre which is attracting a large number of younger audience members (suitable for 8+) who react audibly to the imaginative plot - the "prequel" to "Peter Pan."

The 25th Annual Artie Awards, Buffalo's celebration of local theater, will be held on Monday, June 1 at 710 Main for the first time. The event will be hosted by actors Charmagne Chi, recently seen in "Carousel," and Amy Jakiel, recently in "She Loves Me," with Artvoice theater editor and Theater Talk co-host Anthony Chase.  Doors (and bar) at 710 Main will open at 7 p.m.; the Artie Awards show begins at 8 p.m.  The modest admission fee helps support the Immunodeficiency Clinic at ECMC.

It's time for the annual Arties in Buffalo! On this week's edition of Theater Talk co-host Anthony Chase talks with WBFO's Omar Fetouh about Artovoice's annual Artie Awards.  Chase founded the Arties in 1991 to recognize the work of the local theater actors and actresses.
