Dorbian, Iris, Stage Directions
In addition to ushering the end of the regular theater season, spring is also a precursor for the lavishing of awards. Here in New York City, we will shortly be awash in a sea of laurels-with the advent of the Obies, the Drama Desks and Broadway's annual bash, the Tonys-in early june. At Stage Directions, we are tossing our hat into the ring with some of our own citations, which we will announce at our second annual summer conference this year, to be held August 8-9 at the Hilton New York. Among the awards we will be presenting in a special ceremony are the 2004 Stage Directions' Educator of the Year Awards, which recognize the outstanding achievements of two technical theater teachers, one at the high school level and the other at the college/university level; and the Technical Theater Grant, which awards a windfall of state-of-the-art equipment (donated by top-ranked industry manufacturers) to one of the following: a nonprofit theater, a high school theater or a college/university theater program. If you would like to participate in nominating candidates, please fill out the form on page 19 and mail or fax it back to us by the june 7,2004 deadline; you can also complete an online nomination form at www.stage-directions.com. Please remember to attach a brief 500-word-or-less statement explaining why you think your nominee(s) deserves the honor(s). Good luck!
