Dora Mavor Moore Awards Announce New Venue & Hosts for 35th Anniversary!

The Toronto Alliance for the Performing Arts (TAPA) today announced the date, creative team and an exciting new venue for the 35th anniversary of the Dora Mavor Moore Awards which celebrate extraordinary Toronto talent in the performing arts. The award ceremony will take place on June 23 and, for the very first time, will be held at Harbourfront Centre. The new outdoor venue will offer additional seating for this consistently sold-out event under the stars at the WestJet Stage, a 1,300-seat outdoor concert venue covered by a transparent roof with open sides.

TAPA is also pleased to announce the artistic team for the Dora Awards. Last seasonís show was deemed one of the very best in its history. Dora Awards Producer Jacoba Knaapen is proud to announce that the creative team from 2013 returns for the special 35th anniversary show and will be co-hosted for the second year in a row by the deliciously funny Matt Baram and Naomi Snieckus, Second City alumni and founding Co-Artistic Directors of the three-time Canadian Comedy Award-winning improv company, The National Theatre of the World.
