Our Venue for the 2016 Awards Show 

Capitol Center for the Arts Exterior - Click to link to CCA page

As was announced at the conclusion of the 2015 NHTA Award Show, our venue for 2016 will be the Capitol Center for the Arts (C.C.A), in Concord, N.H. We hope that the central location of the C.C.A. will prove to be great for our state-wide showcase of theater in New Hampshire.

The 1000+ seat theater is an historical treasure that opened in 1927 and was renovated in 1995. The new location offers a number of advantages including the chance to host our own "After Party" in the C.C.A.'s spacious "Governor's Hall" -- making it easy to keep the night alive after the awards have been handed out.

The New Hampshire Theatre Awards has always been a statewide celebration of theatre and the central location of the C.C.A. will make the event even more accessible. Concord's streets are packed with restaurants and fun meeting places for those who like to gather in advance of the show, and the city will have just completed a multi-million dollar renovation that will add to the splendor of the occasion.

We look forward to seeing you at the Capital Center for the Arts on Saturday, January 23rd, 2016 at 7:00pm

Please check our website and Facebook page for ticket information as we approach the event date.

Ballot Scoring System is ONLINE 

yay!

THE BALLOT SCORING SYSTEM IS ONLINE (CLICK HERE TO LOGIN)

Dear Adjudicators and Liaisons,

On behalf of the Board of Directors of The New Hampshire Theatre Awards, please accept my sincere apology for the long delay in our efforts to complete this important update to the adjudication website.

Thank you for your patience throughout this process - it was much appreciated!

I very much appreciate that many adjudicators diligently followed the best practice of completing your ballots on time and sending them to your liaisons for review.  Your dedication to this process has not gone unseen by me or the adjudication committee. Thank you and keep up the good work!

Further, I would like to personally thank the members of our Adjudication Committee for their individual efforts completing this project. Many thanks to Mo Demers, Bryan Halperin, Joe Vago, Justin Voshell, and Lowell Williams.

With that said, the new adjudication website is now active and ready for you to submit your ballot(s)

Please report any difficulties you have in saving or entering your ballot(s) to admin@nhtheatreawards.org and proctor@nhtheatreawards.org.  

One note: we understand that many of your ballots are currently listed as “late” on the system.  As they are late due to our delay updating the website, we are giving everyone a two week grace period.  This should allow you ample time to enter your ballot(s) into the system.  For shows already completed, the clock on late ballots won’t start until two weeks from today.  For shows upcoming and within the last 15 days, the regular schedule will be followed.

Once you have submitted your ballot, you will receive a confirmation email message containing your scores and comments.  Please check to make sure that these scores and comments accurately reflect your entries.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact the adjudication committee or me at anytime.

Again,  we thank you for your patience and understanding during this process.  
 
Sincerely,

Gina M. Carballo,
President, Board of Directors

The NHTA Adjudication Committee

The "Matty" Award for Vision and Tenacity


Candidates for this award will have demonstrated both the creativity to see the potential for a concept or project in the field of performing arts and will have advanced its development to the point that it is functional and has the resources required for it to be sustained. 

The successful candidate will also have had to carry forth the project overcoming obstacles which might otherwise preclude it coming to fruition. Possible projects might include but are not limited to:
 

  •     The founding and successful running of a theatre company
  •     Development or rehabilitation of a physical performance space
  •     Development of new styles of performance, dance, vocality or stage craft (lighting, sound, set design, costuming)
  •     Projects which meet a community need or become a voice for social need (eg. theatre for the disabled, blind or deaf)
  •     Theatre education programs

Send nomination, supporting materials, write up, and contact info to VisionAward@NHTheatreAwards.org

This award was inspired by Matty Gregg, a New Hampshire Magazine employee whose zeal and energy was the necessary ingredient to make the first New Hampshire Theatre Awards competition and awards night a success.  

Please have your nomination submitted by May 15 at the very latest.  This award is determined by the NHTA Board of Directors with input from New Hampshire Magazine. 

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Children's and Youth Theatre Award.

Candidates are leaders who have made remarkable contributions to the involvement, inspiration and achievement of young actors and theatrical artists. This is an award for a person, not a company, though often the two are indistinguishable from the point of view of the community in which they operate. It's also possible that the best candidate has no individual organization to his or her credit and is still viewed as an inspirational or transformative leader.

Send nomination, supporting materials, write up, and nominee contact info to ChildrensAward@NHTheatreAwards.org

This award recognizes an individual who conducts a children or youth program, that is remarkable for the quality of work produced or for the challenges overcome in theatrical productions. 

Please have your nomination submitted by May 15 at the very latest. This award is determined by the NHTA Board of Directors majority vote.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Francis Grover Cleveland Lifetime Achievement Award


Candidates will be chosen based upon the quality, scope and consistency of their positive influence upon theatre in the state. This is an award for a lifetime of service, though it does not imply that the person's contributions have ended or declined. 

Nominations should include sufficient supporting documentation that the committee has a basis for consideration on the nominee.

Send nomination, supporting materials, write up, and nominee contact info to LifetimeAward@NHTheatreAwards.org

Some things the Board of Directors will be taking into consideration:
 

  •     How has this person affected theatre as a whole?
  •     What was the extent of the theatrical impact in NH?
  •     How long has this person been making an impact in NH? Have they been doing it for longer periods of time?
  •     Has the theatre contribution to the community been a positive one?
  •     Has the theatre contribution changed the social fabric for the better?
  •     Has the theatre contribution made a lasting impact on NH?

Please have your nomination submitted by May 15 at the very latest. This award is determined by the NHTA Board of Directors majority vote.


About the Award
The award was named for the founder of The Barnstormers Summer Theatre, the nation's oldest summer stock theatre company, still operating in Tamworth.
