The Sarah Siddons Society, celebrating its 70th-anniversary year, will present its 2022 Award to three-time Tony Award nominee Sandy Duncan.

Following a reception, the evening's program will include musical selections from Duncan's most memorable shows (The King and I, The Boyfriend, The Canterbury Tales and, of course, Peter Pan) performed by Chicago theater stars under the music direction of Nick Sula.
