We are pleased to announce RVNAHealth President and CEO Theresa Santoro, and Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance Executive Director Amy Piantaggini as the inaugural honorees of the Thrown Stone New Connections Award.
The New Connections Awards were envisioned to recognize individuals who exemplify Thrown Stone’s values and our mission to move, connect, and challenge all who join our theatrical conversation. Each year, the award will focus on a distinct theme that harmonizes with our season. In 2022, that theme is Mentoring Young Women.
The inaugural honorees have distinguished themselves over a number of years as mentors, and have each selected a mentee, who will present their awards in a short ceremony following our opening night performances. Melissa Woodhouse will present Ms. Santoro with her award on July 15th, after the performance of Athena by Gracie Gardner. Nell Walton will present Ms. Piantaggini with her award on July 22nd, after the performance of Hysterical! by Elenna Stauffer.
Thrown Stone is grateful to these mentors who make a profound difference in our region, and we are delighted to celebrate their work with this award.
