ADA, Okla. – Competition preliminaries for the annual McSwain Theatre Grand Awards Show kick off at 7 p.m., Aug. 20, at the historic theater, located at 130 W. Main Street in Ada.

The Grand Awards Show offers local artists a stage, audience and a full band supporting them as they compete for audience votes in a number of categories.
