2017-18 Christi Awards Ceremony

Saturday, June 2


LOCATION: Brainerd United Methodist Church


The Christi Awards is a wonderful and fun evening to celebrate great performances by our actors young and old that gave exceptional performances this season. Everyone has the opportunity to dress up and celebrate with other castmates.


The Christi Award name is an abbreviated version of Christian to honor our name and God for giving us the abilities to do all that we do on stage. The award is an etched crystal award where a star is being carved out of the top of a mountain. This is what we do at CFT, chip away at the rough edges until we help create a star!
