Hello, TBA Awards adjudicators and theatre-makers at participating companies,
It is my extreme pleasure to announce that much-loved former staff member and frequent local director and playwright, Claire Rice, has returned to Theatre Bay Area to lead all aspects of the fledgling TBA Awards program. Some of you will remember Claire as our events coordinator from 2010-2013, managing the General Auditions, the Annual Conference and numerous fundraising events.

Claire brings with her a terrific background in theatre as a writer and director. Having earned her MFA in playwriting at San Francisco State, her work has been produced by such companies as Thunderbird Theatre Company and No Nude Men. Recently, she directed the critically acclaimed Hilarity as part of DIVAfest.
Claire says, "I'm excited to be back at Theatre Bay Area working to support a program that is bringing the community together to celebrate our combined success."
I want to thank Robert Sokol for his fantastic work in bringing the TBA Awards to this point. Because of his dedication to Bay Area theatre-makers and his thoughtful development of the awards program, our community can now take pride in having a credible, region-wide, peer-adjudicated awards program that raises the profile of theatre in the Bay Area.
Beginning April 16, 2015
