The 2012 Tony Honors for Excellence in the Theatre were announced over the weekend. This year, those deemed to have demonstrated “extraordinary achievement in theatre” are Freddie Gershon, Artie Siccardi, and TDF Open Doors.

Gershon created Music Theatre International’s Broadway KIDS/Broadway JR., which condenses and tours Broadway musicals to elementary and middle schools. Siccardi, who serves as production supervisor of Arthur Siccardi Theatrical Services, Inc., has overseen 200-plus Broadway productions, and the Theatre Development Fund’s Open Doors partners working theater professionals with New York City public high school students in a mentorship program.

The awards will be presented Saturday, June 9, at the annual pre-Tony Awards cocktail party.
