The Judges Pledge

As a judge for Theatre Tampa Bay Awards Awards, I promise to:

  • Make every effort to attend the opening weekend of each show.

  • Submit my ballot within 24 hours of seeing the show.

  • Evaluate all productions with complete impartiality.

  • Focus only on what is happening on that particular stage during that specific performance without introducing any comparisons into my deliberations.

  • Rely on taste, discernment, evaluative, analytical, and inquisitive skills to rigorously judge based on my breadth of experience with Tampa Bay theatre.

  • Be open and receptive to new experiences.

  • Attend an initial judge orientation and any subsequent judge meetings during the year, if necessary.

  • Attend all eligible shows (at least 40 – 45 shows per year).

  • Refrain from discussing a show with ANYONE prior to submitting my ballot.

  • Refrain from discussing how I specifically scored any piece of work.

  • Refrain from suggesting to anyone that I believe/know any information about any nomination or award, as information about any nomination or award is factually impossible to know in advance of any announcement.

  • Refrain from reading any/all published reviews until after my ballot has been submitted.

  • Shun and reject any/all hearsay or theatre gossip when completing my ballot.

  • Exercise discretion and bring no expectation of any special treatment at any theatre I attend as a judge.

  • Arrive within ten minutes of curtain time and remain for the entirety of the production.

  • I also understand that if I miss three scheduled and confirmed attendances, my term may be discontinued.
