You go to the shows. You clap wildly. You go home and tell your friends. Here's your chance to support the artists who make local theater happen in person. Check out the Theatre Tampa Bay Awards on Monday at the Palladium, 253 Fifth Ave. N, St. Petersburg. The show, produced by the area's professional theater alliance and hosted by Matthew McGee and Jonelle Meyer, will honor the best in local theater from a slate of eligible productions put on last season. The evening will feature performances, including one by Lulu Picart from the cabaret Disenchanted!, which appeared at the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts in the spring and was recently picked up Off-Broadway. And word is, guests will also witness a preview performance from Freefall Theatre's Into the Woods, which opens Oct. 11. The red carpet with Scott Daniel starts at 6:30 p.m., followed by the show at 7:30. An after-party will wrap up the night. Tickets are $25. Call (240) 462-6087 or visit theatretampabay.com.
