TBA Awards Community Check-Ins

Posted By TBA Staff, Monday, May 2, 2016
Updated: Wednesday, June 1, 2016

As the TBA Awards program enters its fourth year, we continue to strengthen its position as a credible, community-wide awards program that recognizes achievement in professionally-oriented theatre in the Bay Area.

On June 7, we will hold two informational sessions about the TBA Awards program, listed below. The goal of these sessions is to give background on how the program developed and where it is now; answer your questions; hear your feedback on the program; get more folks involved and continue to build on the program’s successes!

• Are you an individual theatre-maker wondering how to become a TBA Awards adjudicator?
• Are you a producer wanting to make sure your work is appropriately supported by the program?
• Do you just want to learn more about the TBA Awards process in general?

Attend one of the following sessions to find out more!


Please RSVP using the links below.
We look forward to having you involved.
