There will be an awards ceremony held at East Valley High Schol’s Dutton Family Theatre in Mesa, AZ at 7:00 p.m. (registration beginning at 6:15 p.m.) on Sunday, August 6. If possible, please pass this information and the RSVP link below on to the winners and nominees. If they are unable to attend this ceremony, they may alternatively be able to attend one of the other ceremonies held in Arizona, Virginia, Colorado, or New York later this summer. Award winners, including all cast members of Ensemble and Production awards, will be invited up to the stage for the presentation of the award. Nomination certificates will be available at the registration table for all individual nominees or given to the director for distribution.


Anyone who wants to attend, including all performers who would like to sit in the audience, will need to reserve their tickets so that we know if they will be there and to ensure we have a seat for them (there is the possibility of a sellout). There is a ticket form located at http://www.nationalyouththeatre.com/news/news_nya_awards2017_rsvp_scottsdale.asp. All award winners and nominees get 1 free ticket for themselves (as do participants of any Outstanding Ensemble or Production award). Additional tickets are $15/each.
