Nominations Due For 2014 Rosetta LeNoire Award

Nominations are being accepted through Friday, February 14, 2014 for Equity’s annual Rosetta LeNoire Award.   The award, established in 1988, recognizes outstanding contributions made by either an individual or an institution to advance the “universality of the human experience in American theatre.”  It is named for Rosetta LeNoire, not only to recognize her body of work and her work with Equity’s  then-named Ethnic Minorities Committee, but also for founding the AMAS Repertory Theatre Company in New York, an organization dedicated to maintaining an interracial company of actors. 
            Nominations for the award must be submitted in writing and be accompanied by supporting documentation attesting to how the nominee fulfills the award criterion.   Attached to the submission form should be a biography/resume of the nominee; the mission statement and Annual Report of the theatre/institution; praiseworthy newspaper articles; evidence of awards or recognition the nominee has received; examples of casting and productions that fulfill the objective; and letters of support.  There is a ten-page limit for the Submission Form and supporting information.

            Inherent in the award is acknowledgement that the recipient has an exemplary record in both the hiring of ethnic minorities (including female actors, actors with disabilities and senior actors) and should have a working relationship (and a history) with Actors’ Equity Association.
Nominations should be mailed to: Rosetta LeNoire Award Nominations c/o Actors Equity Association, 557 West Randolph Street, Chicago, IL 60661, Att:  Luther Goins.
For further information, contact Luther Goins, National Equity Employment Opportunity Coordinator at 312-641-0393, ext. 237 or via email at
