Nominations sought for 2013 Playhouse Honours

by on January 14, 2013

The Fredericton Playhouse is asking the public for nominations for The Playhouse Honours 2013. Since 2008, The Fredericton Playhouse board of directors has awarded The Playhouse Honours annually. The recognition honours individuals’ involvement in the performing arts in Fredericton, fostering a deeper appreciation of the value that people can make to community life through their work in music, theatre, dance, spoken word, and multidisciplinary performing arts. A permanent display in the west gallery of the Playhouse recognizes the honourees.

The Playhouse Honours initiative celebrates and thanks individuals from our community who have made a significant contribution to Fredericton through their involvement in the performing arts,” says Patrick Flanagan, president of The Fredericton Playhouse board of directors. “We do this through an accessible and thoughtful event which has in the past been a highlight of the year, not only for the recipient, but for the many community members whose lives have been touched and made more meaningful in some respect by the individual.”

Nominations can be made by any person or organization. Underscoring the personal investment that they have made in the community, recipients must be individuals, not companies or organizations. Recipients may be a professional or amateur artist, administrator, volunteer, educator, philanthropist, advocate, organizer, etc. A selection committee (jury) comprised of members of the local arts community will review the submissions and recommend an honouree to the Fredericton Playhouse board of directors.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, February 22, 2013. Past recipients include Ilkay Silk (2008), Brent Staeben (2009), Philip Sexsmith (2010), Walter Learning (2011), and Mabel Doak (2012).
