The 67th Annual Chanticleer Awards

Weathervane's Annual Volunteer-Recognition Event!
The Chanticleer Awards are Weathervane's version of the Tony Awards — but combined with the populist spirit of the People's Choice Awards!

Weathervane's friends and supporters gathered at the Playhouse on Saturday, Aug. 25, 2018, for a very special night to honor the Playhouse's volunteers — both on stage and behind the scenes — for their commitment, time and talents given during the 2017-2018 season.
