BONS Award 2021

I am so pleased to announce that The Studio has been awarded North of Boston Magazine’s BONS Award for 2021. We won both the Readers’ Choice and Editors’ Choice for Best small live/virtual venue for the whole North Shore. I congratulate all of our teachers, directors, writers, actors, and project producers. You all adapted brilliantly to the circumstances and challenges of the past 18 months, bringing a continuous flow of great material to our audiences.  This honor is yours!
