The Joci Awards has a longstanding tradition of celebrating the best and brightest of the performing arts in San Antonio, and this year will be no different. The one-night showcase culminates the Las Casas Foundation’s annual scholarship program which supports talented performing arts high school students. Since the program’s inception in 2009, Las Casas has awarded more than $685,000 to deserving students who excel in the performing arts, making it one of the largest scholarship funding source of its kind in the United States.

Each year, nationally-acclaimed theatre professionals gather together to select scholarship winners based on their performances. This year’s Joci Awards will take place at the Charline McCombs Empire Theatre on Sunday, May 21.
