East End Arts’ Teeny Awards judging committee has put out a call for qualified volunteers that are needed to evaluate high school theatrical performances on the East End for the 2013-2014 academic year.
The Teeny Awards is a high school theater recognition program, founded and run by East End Arts since 2002.
The popular program, now entering its 12th year, shines a spotlight on talented theater students from across the East End; judges are needed to view and assess all performance to determine the year's winners.
“Ideal candidates have background, experience, or a strong appreciation for theater and will be committed to seeing as many shows as they can throughout the school year,” said Anita Boyer, Teeny Awards Coordinator. “This is an important job and an excellent opportunity to be part of this program. I look forward to welcoming back veteran judges and inviting new judges this year; the more eyes we have on the shows the stronger our program can be.”
Judges will be selected based on experience and knowledge of theater. Judges attend a minimum of four high school productions anonymously and assess students with the use of an evaluation tool based on the academic rubric. Orientation is provided.
Theatrical performances take place at 17 high schools in eastern Suffolk County.
All judges are invited to the gala awards ceremony in June, 2014.
A kick-off meeting for Teeny Awards judges will be held on October 9 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the East End Arts Carriage House on East Main Street.
