The First Annual National
Youth Theatre Awards Are Coming...
June 6, 2001, San Diego Playbill announced the winners of the First Annual San Diego Playbill
"Billie" Awards to honor outstanding work in local theatre. Growing
from that seed, we are now preparing to hold the First Annual National Youth
This inaugural year will include youth productions reviewed in Arizona,
California, Colorado, and Nevada. Those eligible for the awards include anyone involved with shows reviewed by
National Youth Theatre.
The Youth Awards are considered for all actors in youth productions age 19 and
younger, adults who participated in the youth theatre productions backstage, and any minor
(under age 18) who performed in a reviewed adult production.
These awards were started simply as a way to congratulate and thank
some of the amazing people who contributed so much to our theatre entertainment over the
year. Traditionally an award "year" runs from the beginning of June to
the end of May, with the winners
announced on this website by the first
week of June. This year we expect to announce the award winners on May 29.
On Monday, June 12, 2006 the First Annual National Youth Theatre Awards will be presented at the
Garfield Theatre in the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center located in
San Diego's beautiful La Jolla area. Home of J*Company for the past several years, they are once again generously
donating the use of their state-of-the-art, 495-seat theatre space, as well as their
professional assistance, for this year's festivities.
Further details, including RSVP information, will be available as the award
winners are announced. In the meantime, please contact Rob Hopper if you have any questions or desire further information.
