Helen Hayes Awards Set New Requirements for Eligibility

News   Helen Hayes Awards Set New Requirements for Eligibility
TheatreWashington has released the updated guide to Helen Hayes Awards eligibility. In 2016, actors must be compensated at least $12.50 per rehearsal day for the production to be considered professional.

As previously reported, a new system was put in place in September 2013 that restructures the voting and judging of the awards that celebrate excellence in Washington, DC-area professional theatre.

The new guide, released here, states that (among other criteria) the weekly rehearsal rate for actors is $75, the per diem rehearsal rate (based on six rehearsal days per week) is $12.50 per rehearsal day, the performance weekly rate is $150 and the per-performance rate (based on eight shows per week) is $18.75 per performance.

The minimum compensation per production is $750 for directors, $500 for designers, $500 for musical directors and $500 for choreographers.
