East End Arts Seeks Judges for 2017-18 Teeny Awards


Calling all theater junkies! East End Arts’ Teeny Awards Judging Committee is looking for volunteers to evaluate high school theatrical performances on the East End for the 2017-18 school year.

The Teeny Awards is a high school theater recognition program, founded and run by East End Arts since 2002. Now entering its 16th year, the program recognizes and celebrates talented theater students across the East End of Long Island.

For more information on becoming a judge, contact Teeny Awards Coordinator Kristen Lee Curcie at TeenyAwards@eastendarts.org, and attend the pre-season Judges Meeting at East End Arts’ Carriage House on Monday, October 2 at 6:30 p.m. At this meeting, program coordinators will discuss the responsibilities and perks of being an East End Arts Teeny Awards Judge. The East End Arts Carriage House is located behind their Gallery, located at 133 E. Main Street in Riverhead.

“Ideal candidates should be passionate about all aspects of theatre with an understanding of the hard work that each student puts into each production,” said Kristen Lee Curcie, East End Arts Teeny Awards Coordinator. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to support this great arts community, and hope to have both new and veteran judges to fill these important positions. It means so much to these students.”

Judges will be selected based on experience and knowledge of theatre. Judges attend a minimum of eight high school productions at 17 high schools in eastern Suffolk County, anonymously and judge performances, set design, and sound. For more information, visit eastendarts.org.
