Millions of people will tune into the Tony Awards this Sunday to watch incredible talent within the theater community be recognized for outstanding performances and distinguished achievement. It takes a lot to put on a theater production and there is usually a supporting cast of people behind the scenes. Without them, the show simply would not go on. I’m also really looking forward to seeing Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles host the show.
Throughout the Tony Awards season, our sponsor Grant Thornton (the Official Professional Services Partner of the Tony Awards) is celebrating the #supportingcast members that play integral roles in the careers and personal lives of Broadway stars and Grant Thornton employees. Grant Thornton was chosen by the Tony Awards to tabulate the nominations, voting and results for 2018 and they’ll be behind the scenes to ensure that each win is undeniably accurate.
Grant Thornton has launched a fan-supported social challenge campaign focused on recognition of an individual’s supporting cast. This means you can share your #SupportingCast (using this hashtag) on social media. These are the people who are important to your business or personal life. For every person who does this, Grant Thornton will make a donation to The American Theatre Wing and The Broadway League Foundation.
The Tony Awards air live Sunday, June 10 from Radio City Music Hall starting at 5:00 p.m. PT/8:00 p.m. ET. You can also get to know some of the Tony Award nominees beforehand.
For the first hour of the Tony Awards, turn to Twitter. We’ll be online for the 1-hour #SupportingCast Twitter party and you will have the chance to win two tickets to a Broadway show!
