Nominations sought for The Playhouse Honours 2017

by on March 29, 2017

The Fredericton Playhouse is asking the public for nominations for The Playhouse Honours 2017.

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 award is a way of thanking community leaders who have made a meaningful contribution to Fredericton through their involvement in the performing arts,” says Susan Holt, president of the Fredericton Playhouse board of directors. “This initiative recognizes a deserving individual each year, and it’s also an opportunity to celebrate with the many community members whose lives have been significantly impacted by the recipient.”

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, April 28, 2017. Past recipients include Ilkay Silk (2008), Brent Staeben (2009), Philip Sexsmith (2010), Walter Learning (2011), Mabel Doak (2012), Bonnie Kilburn (2013), Michael Doherty (2014), Hrvoje and Aida Tisler (2015) and Peter Pacey (2016). The Playhouse Honours is proudly presented by Atlantic Mediaworks.

To nominate a candidate for The Playhouse Honours award, please fill in the following information and complete a written submission of no more than two (2) pages describing the reasons you feel that your nominee should be considered for The Playhouse Honours.

An emphasis should be placed on the accumulated contributions of individuals over a period of time and consideration should be given to the local legacy and impact of the nominee on community life and the performing arts.
