SF North Bay Companies Snag 43 Noms For 2018 TBA Awards

San Francisco's Theatre Bay Area has announced the nominees for their 5th Annual TBA Awards and North Bay companies have snagged multiple nominations.

The TBA Awards are designed to honor excellence in professionally oriented theatre through a peer-based, Bay Area-wide adjudication process of artists and productions from companies who are members of Theatre Bay Area and pay an awards registration fee. Participating North Bay companies include 6th Street Playhouse, Cinnabar Theater, Left Edge Theatre, Lucky Penny Productions, Marin Musical Theatre Company, Marin Shakespeare Company, Marin Theatre Company, Mountain Play Association, Novato Theater Company, Ross Valley Players, Sonoma Arts Live and Spreckels Theatre Company

TBA divides their awards into three tiers with the intent to create an equitable system of evaluation for production aspects that can be influenced by levels of professional development and/or available resources and use the following criteria:

Tier 1: Productions in this tier operate under LORT or BAT contracts with Actors Equity Association (AEA). Companies operating with LORT or BAT contracts and annual budget in excess of $1M must participate in Tier 1. Companies operating with LORT or BAT contracts but an annual budget below $1M may choose to participate in Tier 1 or Tier 2. Tier 1 productions must be seen by a minimum of 12 adjudicators.

Tier 2: Productions in this tier operate under some AEA contract and/or an annual operating budget of $400K or above. Companies operating under some AEA contract and an annual operating budget of below $400K may choose to participate in Tier 2 or Tier 3. Tier 2 productions must be seen by a minimum of 9 adjudicators.

Tier 3: Productions in this tier have no AEA requirement and operate on an annual budget below $400K. Tier 3 productions must be seen by a minimum of 6 adjudicators.
