True Colors Applauds: An Ovation Circle Awards Brunch

True Colors’ Ovation Circle Giving Society
A campaign to drive awareness and investment in the work of Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company.


The Ovation Circle Giving Society is the lifeblood of True Colors’ long-term sustainability and growth.  These generous companies and families from all walks of life invest in our mission to transform our world through bold, diverse theatre.” 

Chandra Stephens- Albright,  Managing Director


The 2017-2018 season marks True Colors Theatre Company’s 15th anniversary and the launch of our Ovation Circle Giving Society campaign. The True Colors team has been reaching out to current and prospective society members with opportunities to invest in the work of the company.  From production sponsorships, to education scholarships, to operating support – all of these investments ensure that Atlanta audiences experience True Colors’ message of celebrating our common humanity.  As a member of the Ovation Circle Giving Society, you will help raise $700,000 in support of celebrating the rich tradition of Black storytelling while giving voice to bold new artists of all cultures.


The campaign will culminate with the inaugural True Colors Applauds: An Ovation  Circle Awards Brunch on June 2, 2018. This invitation-only event will celebrate Ovation Circle Giving Society members who have invested in True Colors Theatre Company, making its accomplishments possible, and launch True Colors’ next 15 years with exceptional leadership and strong philanthropic support.


True Colors Applauds will feature the 2018 Atlanta Regional August Wilson Monologue Competition finalists, recognize winners of the 2018 True Colors Applauds Awards, and celebrate investors in True Colors’ mission of inclusion and diversity through theatre.
