Our 33rd Anniversary Celebration will honor Robert G. Luna, Julie & John Mendell and Christopher J. Steinhauser 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 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.

The James Ackerman Crystal Arts and Humanitarian Award:

ICT acknowledges an outstanding member of the community who has made a significant contribution to the cultural life of this city and International City Theatre.
