Court Receives 11 Jeff Award Nominations for 2019/20 Season

King Hedley IICourt Theatre is excited to announce that we received 11 Jeff Awards nominations for the shortened 2019/20 Season, with each production earning at least one nomination. At a time when non-profits arts organizations and theatres have been so affected by the pandemic, we are grateful to be reminded of all of the passionate artists whose work brings Chicago’s stages to life.

Each year, the Joseph Jefferson Awards committee honors outstanding Chicago area theatres and artists. This achievement continues to reinforce the consistent quality of our artistic contributions to Chicago’s theatre scene.
