Congratulations, TBA Awards Finalists!

Please read the following carefully. It contains instructions for your participation in the sixth annual TBA Awards Celebration. This includes info we need from you, how to reserve your ceremony tickets, and what to do on the day of the event. 


Step 1: Contact the organization(s) that produced the show(s) for which you are a finalist!

This year, the producing companies will be spearheading the communication with TBA for all finalists. Please contact your organization(s) for: 

Tickets to the Awards Celebration!

  • Each TBA Awards finalist receives a credit for $40 that can be used for one (1) complimentary ticket (subject to a service fee) if bought before September 29, for anywhere in the Herbst Theatre! Prices begin to go up after September 29: Finalists will be able to purchase one $5 ticket if bought before October 21; or one $10 ticket bought before/on November 4. 
  • Companies have two options — purchase a group of tickets for your whole crew (so that you can all celebrate together!) using the finalist credits; OR they will instruct you to use the finalist credit independently.
  • To purchase tickets to the Awards Celebration independent from your company, call City Box Office at (415) 392-4400. Finalist tickets cannot be purchased through the City Box Office or TBA websites. Notify the box office staff that you are a 2019 TBA Awards Finalist. 
    NOTE: If you are finalist in multiple categories, you are entitled to
    one finalist credit.

Information for the Awards Celebration!

  • Companies will send TBA the names, name pronunciation, headshots, email addresses, and mailing addresses of their finalists. This information will be used to communicate about the Awards Celebration, in projections at the Celebration, and to mail awards to any finalists not able to attend the event. Make sure that your organization(s) have current information for you!
  • If your company instructs you to submit your information independently, and/or you'd like to submit your information just in case, please submit by Oct. 18 through this form: https://airtable.com/shrSSURrKh3nJYKpq.


Step 2: Share your finalist status and invite your friends to come cheer you on at the Awards Celebration!

  • Invite your friends and networks via the Facebook event or TBA website event:

  • Show the world your Finalist status with a 2019 TBA Awards Finalist badge!


Step 3: Prepare for the Ceremony and watch your inbox!

  • Finalist information email: A few days before the ceremony, you will receive an email with all of your finalist information attached. This will include key information on where to sign in, where to go next, when to be ready backstage, what to expect and more on the night of the event. Please read these instructions before you arrive at the event. 
  •  Check-in: On the night of the event, there will be a check-in table for finalists. Please check in immediately upon your arrival at the Herbst Theatre. The check-in staff will be able to answer any last-minute questions you have.
