The Glorious Ones, the Erie Playhouse entry at PACT (Pennsylvania Association of Community Theatres) Theatre Festival held in Williamsport, PA this weekend, was awarded the honor of Outstanding Production earlier today (Sunday, March 19) at the awards ceremony.

In all, the Playhouse received 10 awards. 

The Playhouse now advances to the regional competition, which will be in Delaware later this Spring.
