|TBA Awards Details|
The TBA Awards program connects a pool of vetted industry professionals to productions submitted for evaluation by Theatre Bay Area member companies. It incorporates the best practices of existing systems in Los Angeles, Chicago and other major theatre centers, allowing for both immediate feedback (as well-received productions appear on The Recommended List) and annual recognition of outstanding achievement in a way that is both credible and representative of the community at large.
Adjudicators are drawn from the Bay Area's theatre professionals such as actors, directors, designers, administrators, journalists and educators. During each awards cycle, these adjudicators evaluate all productions submitted for evaluation by participating companies. The 2014 pool of adjudicators was 200 theatre professionals strong.
The TBA Awards recognizes achievement in over 60 awards categories, grouped by creative and
technical disciplines, in the genres of plays and musicals, and spread over
three tiers that recognize the continuum of professional development, available
resources and overall scale of the producing companies.
