GREEN BAY — Actor Tony Shalhoub, a Green Bay native, will participate in a Q&A from the big screen as part of this year’s MLC film awards.

The MLC Awards, taking place May 28-29, 2022, in Green Bay, recognize independently produced films, television work and videography locally and internationally. 

A wide variety of genres are accepted in shorts, feature films and videos, but the MLC awards take their name from three of its basic pillars: mobster, Latinx and comedy.

Shalhoub, who stars in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” will participate at 3 p.m. via Zoom May 29 at The Tarlton Theatre.

Shalhoub will be interviewed by MLC Awards President Freddy Moyano. The audience will be able to ask questions of Shalhoub, who grew up in Green Bay in a family of 10 children and graduated from Green Bay East High School.
