Our 32nd Anniversary Celebration will honor Douglas and Freda Otto, Union Pacific and James P. Preusch with ICT’s James Ackerman Crystal Arts and Humanitarian Award for their significant contribution to arts, culture and education.





Encore is International City Theatre’s Board of Directors’ signature annual, major fundraising event. All proceeds support ICT’s many outreach programs and productions. Our programs reach 35,000 people a year from every economic and geographic area of the city, as well as surrounding communities from Los Angeles to Orange County.

The James Ackerman Crystal Arts and Humanitarian Award: ICT also acknowledges an outstanding member of the community who has made a significant contribution to the cultural life of this city and International City Theatre.

The event itself is business attire and consists of:

• Cocktails and a special reception

• Gourmet Dinner

• Silent and Live Auctions

• Entertainment

Encore is a glamorous evening attended by many leading members of the community. ICT is a non-profit theatre (501(c)(3)), and funds raised support our productions and educational/community outreach programs for children, families and seniors.

If you would like to attend this wonderful event or have any questions, please call ICT Sales Manager Denis Nigos at 562.495.4595, ext. 102. You may also email him by clicking here.
