SBMT up for seven TBA awards!

Congratulations to South Bay Musical Theatre’s seven finalists competing in the fifth annual Theatre Bay Area (TBA) Awards, which take place November 5, 2018.

Theatre Bay Area is the third-largest regional theatre service organization in North America, and the TBA Awards, now in its fourth year, honors the excellence of professionally-oriented theatre in the Bay Area by offering a peer-based adjudication process and awards celebration. This year, more than 400 adjudicators cast approximately 10,000 ballots to evaluate over 300 productions staged by 122 participating Bay Area arts companies. With that much competition, this is indeed a great honor, and SBMT is justifiably proud of its talented team of artists.

SBMT has six finalists from The Hunchback of Notre Dame and one from The Bridges of Madison County. They include the following:

  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame is a finalist for “Outstanding Production of a Musical” among “Tier III” theatre companies. (Productions in this tier have no Actors’ Equity Association (AEA) requirement and operate on an annual budget below $400K. Tier III productions must be seen by a minimum of (6) six adjudicators.)

David Mister is a finalist for “Outstanding Performance in a Principal Role (Musical)” for his portrayal of Quasimodo in The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

How the TBA Awards work

During each production season (September 1 to August 31), TBA Awards adjudicators attend eligible productions and submit recommended productions every week. Theatre Bay Area publishes these weekly recommendations for its members and to the general public. At the end of each season, all of the votes are tallied to determine each year’s award finalists and recipients. The 2017-18 awards season marks the first year that all performance categories will be gender-inclusive and not designated along the male/female binary.

The fifth annual TBA Awards Celebration will be held on Monday, Nov. 5 at the Herbst Theatre (401 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco). Tickets for the public go on sale Friday, September 28, 2018, through City Box Office. Members of the public who wish to attend can order tickets online: www.cityboxoffice.com or charge by phone at (415) 392-4400.
