Versatility and ability to portray a variety of characters over four decades on stage, screen, and television have made Tony Roberts one of the busiest actors in America. He is a graduate of the High School of Music and Arts, which merged with the High School of Performing Arts to become LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center, where he majored in theater and studied acting with Alvina Krause. Tony is the son of Radio and Television announcer Ken Roberts one of the founding members of AFTRA, and has himself served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Screen Actor's Guild and Actor's Equity Association. Tony has appeared in dozens and dozens of films including Annie Hall, Play it Again Sam, Hannah and her Sisters, Stardust Memories, and Midsummer Sex Comedy with his good friend Woody Allen, as well as appearances in countless Broadway productions including Victor Victoria, They’re Playing our Song, Arsenic and Old Lace, Follies, and South Pacific.

Both events take place in the high school auditorium and are open to the public thanks to a grant from the HPTA.
