Nominations Due for 2011 Rosetta LeNoire Award

Equity's National Equal Employment Opportunity Committee is accepting nominations for the 2011 Rosetta LeNoire Award. Created in 1988, the award recognizes outstanding "artistic contributions to the universality of the human experience in American theatre" by either an individual, theatre or producing organization. Inherent in the award is acknowledgement that the recipient has an exemplary record in the hiring or promotion of ethnic minorities, female actors and actors with disabilities through multi-racial and/or non-traditional casting.

The award was named in honor of the actress Rosetta LeNoire, who was also the first recipient, not only because of her body of work in the theatre --- and her work with the then titled Actors' Equity Association's Ethnic Minorities Committee --- but also for founding the AMAS Repertory Theatre Company, an organization dedicated to maintaining an "interracial company" of actors.
