Spark, the 9th Annual Winter Gala of the Epic Theatre Ensemble, which will be held March 1 at 6 PM at 24 Fifth, will honor James Calleri of Calleri Casting.

Calleri is being honored for his "longstanding support of adventurous independent Off-Broadway theatre and his helping spark the careers of many of America’s finest actors," according to a press announcement. Special appearances will be made by two of Calleri's "discoveries," Kristen Johnston (Baby Anger, "Third Rock From The Sun") and Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at Classic Stage Company). Kathleen Chalfant (A Hard Heart) and Colman Domingo will also take part in the celebration, as will Melissa Friedman and Shana Brown, who recently journeyed to the White House to receive the Coming Up Taller Award for Epic's Shakespeare Remix program. Others set to lend their support include Brooke Shields, David Strathairn, Jeff Whitty, Tamara Tunie and Gordon Elliot.

24 Fifth is located in Manhattan at 24 Fifth Avenue, between Ninth and Tenth Avenues. For more information visit www.epictheatreensemble.org.
