Elly Awards

The annual Elly Awards honor outstanding achievements of community theaters and artists in the Sacramento area. Elly Awards are named for the late Eleanor McClatchy, who was a devoted patron of the local arts. We are now taking submission for this year’s Elly Awards. You must be a member theatre in order to enter shows for Elly Awards judging. If you are not yet a member, join here.

New Elly Awards Program Web Portal


Paper forms will no longer be accepted. At the Elly Awards Program Web Portal you will be able to submit your application online and pay by credit card or check. If you wish to pay the entry fee by check, you will need to use our new Elly Awards Program Web Portal. It will allow you to enter your application into our database and then send in the check by mail. Please make sure to include the Production Number provided on your check to insure prompt processing of your payment. 

No show can be considered for judging until the application and fee are received.
Please submit application at least four weeks prior to opening night with a $30 per entry application fee payable to SARTA.
If you submit the application and fee after the four-week deadline, include an additional non-refundable $30 late fee. SARTA will determine whether the judges can schedule the show. If SARTA cannot accept the show, SARTA will return the application fee. No show can be accepted for judging once the show has opened. Please contact the SARTA office if you need assistance.
