Nominations Due for the 2016 Rosetta LeNoire Award
Actors’ Equity is accepting nominations for the 2016 Rosetta LeNoire Award. The award, named after the noted actor and producer Rosetta LeNoire, is given in recognition of her body of work in the theater, her outstanding work with Equity’s Equal Employment Opportunity Committee and also for founding the AMAS Repertory Theatre Company, an organization dedicated to maintaining an “interracial company” of actors.
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.
The deadline for nominations is Friday, February 12, 2016.
