The Playhouse Honours is an opportunity for our board of directors to celebrate and recognize members of our community for their involvement in the performing arts in Fredericton. We believe in fostering a deep appreciation of the impact people can make our community through their work in music, theatre, dance, spoken word and multidisciplinary performing arts.
