Our mission is to support theatre on Austin stages, primarily through the management of the B. Iden Payne Awards.
Our Nominations Committee is composed of local theatre performers, producers, and advocates. Each member is required to view four eligible performances each month, and we meet to discuss performances for inclusion on our short list. This list is reviewed at the end of the year, and narrowed down to the final nominations in each category.
We add new members to our Nominating Committee every August, and begin the recruitment process in June. We are always interested in adding new perspectives, and are currently most interested in adding individuals from the technical theatre community, people of color, and playwrights. If you are interested in joining, please send an email.
