2013 Orchid/OCTA Awards

Cincinnati Community Theaters are judged throughout the year by a panel of critics appointed by ACT, the Association of Community Theaters. In addition to constructive criticism – that is used to improve and maintain the quality of our productions – we receive recognition for excellence in direction, performance, and the technical aspects of our presentations. These are called Orchid Awards and are given out every June.
