To receive a special "nominee" ticket code, contact San Diego Theatre Critics Circle president Pam Kragen at pam.kragen@sduniontribune.com.

How can I get the best reserved table seats at the ceremony?

What if my theater group would like to seat one of our nominees at our table?

We will provide a free seat to a nominee at a theater-purchased table. A nominee's guest can also join the table for $35 (a $15 discount from the regular $50 purchase price).

Is there parking and security available onsite?

Yes. The Jacobs Center has its own onsite parking lot and will be offering complimentary valet parking that night (gratuity not included). To reduce wait time, we recommend carpooling. There is also San Diego Trolley stop onsite (Orange Line, Euclid Street Station). The well-lit and private parking lot is also staffed with security guards.

What is the suggested attire for the event?

We recommend dressy cocktail/business attire.

How substantial is the food served at the event.

We offer a wide variety of free hot and cold hors d'oeuvres at buffet-style stations. We also have a no-host cocktail bar serving soft drinks, beer, wine and quick-pour cocktails. If you're looking for a more substantial meal, there are several quick-service restaurants in the adjacent shopping center.

Do I need to print out my ticket confirmation when I attend?

No. We will have a check-in staff in the lobby with lists to direct ticket-holders to their tables or the gallery seating areas.

Who are the awards named after?

Craig Noel, a National Medal of Arts recipient who passed away in 2010 at the age of 94, is widely revered as the founding father of San Diego's theater community. He was a leader in local arts education, a pioneer in bilingual theater productions and a mentor to countless local theater artists. Full bio here.

What is the San Diego Theatre Critics Circle?

Originally established in 1983, then relaunched and re-dedicated in 1992 to honor Noel's legacy, the San Diego Theatre Critics Circle is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization made up of experienced theater critics at San Diego newspapers, magazines, websites and theater blogs. All money raised through ticket sales at the annual awards ceremony goes toward producing the event as well as cash grants and scholarships for recipients.
