2015 SEASON TRAINING DATES AND LOCATIONS 

YES, IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN

Our Handsome Training Staff (file photo)Remember last year when we all got together and talked about the upcoming NHTA season? The rules, the responsibilities, and the free candy? Well, we're doing it all again and we invite you to join us!

NH Theatre Awards annual training is a 3 hour session that keeps participating Adjudicators and Liaisons up to date on new policies and refresh their memories on the year long NH Theatre Award process.   To be an Adjudicator or Liaison you must have attended training but anyone is welcome to attend and learn more about the NH Theatre Awards process!

what's so important?

TWO BIG CHANGES

The curriculum has been given a brand new focus with a sweeping facelift!

We are restructuring the focus of training away from the "where and when" (dates & deadlines) to invest more in helping the adjudicators understand the "how and why" (critiquing and analysis). There are also rule changes for 2015!

There will be a NEW on-line element that can be done anytime, anywhere, at your convenience!

We are creating a new feature, an on-line review, to reinforce the "rules & regulations" information that is critical for you to know. This will optimize time spent in classroom sessions to focus on the adjudication "process".   

Completion of the survey will be required, in addition to the classroom training, to be a commissioned adjudicator or liaison in 2015.

we are getting started earlier

We're getting started earlier, which means participating companies need to get liaisons' and adjudicators earlier!

  • PLEASE select your adjudicators and liaison ASAP so they can get to training in time
  • Watch for notice when the 2015 Company Application Form is available. 
  • The deadline for company application submission is December 15th.
Date and time Location (Directions below) Host
SATURDAY, OCT 25, 9AM JEAN'S PLAYHOUSE LINCOLN, NH Jean's Playhouse

Due to this sweeping change in format and content, attendance will be mandatory for all adjudicators and liaisons for next season (2015).   But  with these improvements and coming upgrades to the website this fall, the NHTA will FINALLY be able to implement a process for proven, experienced adjudicators to forgo attending training next year!

NHTA Announces New Executive Director! 

New Hampshire Theatre Awards (NHTA) has elected Bryan Halperin as their new Executive Director. Halperin, a founder of and Executive Director of The Winnipesaukee Playhouse since its inception in 2004, comes to NHTA with a vast palette of experience. Halperin is involved with all facets of the Playhouse’s operation. In addition to running its day-to-day operations, Halperin also writes directs, produces, and performs in its plays and musicals. His children’s musical series on environmental education has toured elementary schools throughout the state. He has won several New Hampshire Theatre Awards for directing, and received multiple Finalist nods in the playwright, director and actor categories. Halperin is also the creator of the Playhouse’s Playwriting Project, for which he teaches, in the fall, teens and adults how to write a one act play, and then produces and showcases, in the spring, a new play festival. For the past seven years, Halperin has also served as Producer/Director (and occasional actor) for the Winni Players’ Annual Holocaust Remembrance Day Staged Reading

"I'm thrilled to be getting involved more formally with the NH Theatre Awards at this exciting time in its development.” Halperin says. “For me, theatre is all about community building and I see the NHTAs as an opportunity to expand that objective to a larger, state-wide community.  Having experience producing and directing theatre on the youth, community and professional levels in NH allows me to reach out to and relate to all the participating groups at the various levels and understand the challenges and opportunities they face and figure out how the NHTAs can support and enhance what they do."

States NHTA President, Gina Carballo, "Our Board of Directors and Operations Committee have a great deal of admiration and respect for Bryan. He is our top choice for the Executive Director position. He is a natural leader and possesses the vision, fortitude, and comportment required to implement NHTA’s goals, now and in the future.  Bryan and I share a parallel vision about this organization—our members must always be our top priority, and we must execute our initiatives with utmost integrity. Having a like-minded person lead this organization with me, with the bonus of Bryan's credentials, excites me about the bright future of the New Hampshire Theatre Awards.”
