East End Arts’ Teeny Awards judging committee is looking for new judges to join the panel of volunteers that recognizes outstanding high school actors and students working behind the scenes of high school theater productions throughout the East End.

The Teeny Awards are the high school equivalent of Broadway’s Tony awards. East End Arts’ judges anonymously attend local high school theater productions. Then, using a rubric to rate high school theatrical productions, judges nominate outstanding cast and crew members to honor.

Aspiring judges should have theater experience — either on stage or backstage, — “be passionate about all aspects of theatre and have a full understanding of the hard work that each student puts into each production,” according to Kristen Lee Curcie, the Teeny Awards coordinator.

Interested people should attend the pre-season judges’ meeting on Sept. 17 at 6:30 p.m. at East End Arts’ gallery. Curcie will discuss the responsibilities and perks of being a Teeny Awards judge. Judges will be selected based on experience and knowledge of theater.
