East West Players Honored With The Heritage Award

               East West Players (EWP), the nation’s premier Asian
American theatre, was awarded the Heritage Award at the 9th Annual
Autumn Festival on Saturday, November 6, 2010 held at the Aquarium of
the Pacific in Long Beach, CA.

              The 9th Annual Autumn Festival celebrates the cultures
of China, Japan, Korea, and the Philippines. At each of the Aquarium’s
cultural festivals, an outstanding leader in the community is honored
with the Heritage Award. Cecile Fisher, Vice President of Marketing
for the Aquarium of the Pacific, was there to host the awards
ceremony.  Jan Perry, Los Angeles City Councilwoman of the Ninth
District, presented the award to Tim Dang, Producing Artistic Director
of East West Players, after she performed a Japanese dance to open the
ceremony.

             “We are honored to have been presented with the Heritage
Award for the work we’ve done in our community,” says Tim Dang. “East
West Players is about telling stories, especially from the Asian
Pacific American community. We always try to bring entertainment,
education, and enlightenment in our main stage productions and
educational programs so our neighborhoods can feel that much more in
touch with each other.”

            The weekend was a flurry of activities and featured live
music and dance performances, cultural arts exhibits, and children’s
crafts.  Throughout the weekend artisans and other vendors displayed
and sold their works. Various ethnic entrees were also presented.
