State Theatre Center for the Arts Seeks FREDDY Awards Evaluators


The State Theatre Center for the Arts, Inc. is seeking qualified Evaluators for their Emmy Award winning FREDDY© Awards program which awards excellence in the production of high school musical theatre.

Introduced in 2003, the program sends Evaluators to review each of the approximately 29 high school musical productions entered throughout Lehigh and Northampton Counties in PA, and in Warren County, NJ. Evaluators will be expected to attend at least 14 shows during the season and must submit evaluation forms and nomination recommendations in 21 performance and production categories (i.e. Outstanding Performance by an Actor/Actress in a Leading Role, Outstanding Use of Scenery). Nominations are announced in early May and followed in late May with a Tony Awards style ceremony at the State Theatre where nominees perform and award recipients are announced and presented with a FREDDY© Award. (The 2013 ceremony is Thursday, May 22nd at 7 PM).

We are looking for candidates who have extensive work experience in one of the arts disciplines and have a strong sense of objectivity. They must be able to effectively evaluate student performances and production values. All candidates must be outstanding writers with the ability to effectively communicate their impressions in a constructive manner. Also, a candidate must already be an avid theatre-goer and should possess a wide knowledge of the canon of the American Musical Theatre.

2014 FREDDY© Evaluator Description and Application are available at
