At the beginning of May, we opened up applications for Ovation Awards voters to serve during the 2014-2015 Ovation season. We received a tremendous amount of well-qualified applicants — all working professionals from the LA theatre community. This year’s applicant pool was one of our most competitive; the Ovation Rules Committee reviewed all submissions and applicant essays and held interviews with prospective and returning voters during June. And now, we’re happy to report that we’ll be bringing on approximately forty new voters for next season. Welcome aboard!
Part of the Ovation voter process involves an in-person orientation session, which we’ll be hosting at various locations around LA throughout the summer. Voters will become acquainted with our Ovation voting platform, as well as learn about voter protocol and code of conduct. All of this will ensure that our voters are well-informed and ready to facilitate an efficient and productive Ovation season.
The first orientation occurred on Monday at LA STAGE Space. Check out the photos below! (And voters, make sure to review the list at the bottom of this page to verify you’re on track to complete your voter registration.)
