This is the 31st season of Theater Works, non-profit theater that provides the most comprehensive programming of any performing arts organization in the West Valley. Drawing more than 130,000 patrons to its programs last season, Theater Works’ expansion of artistic offerings has engaged more audiences than ever before and drawn people to the West Valley. This past season, Theater Works received the West Valley Arts Council’s "2015 Champion of the Arts" award, the “Uniquely Peorian” award from the Peoria Chamber of Commerce, “Not-for Profit Partner of the Year” from the Peoria Unified School District, and four "ariZoni" awards. Last season’s show Follies was named one of “The Best of Phoenix Theater Season” for 2014-15 by the Arizona Republic. Theater Works’ extensive programs for youth include full-scale productions (winners of two "ariZoni" awards in 2015 including "Best Overall Youth Production"), year-round classes and camps, and touring troupes that bring music, drama, and dance to major events and festivals, as well as senior centers and schools. Theater Works received the 2014 "Nonprofit Collaboration" award from the Peoria Education Foundation.
