Region 5 Road Warrior Award
The KCACTF Region 5 "Road Warrior Award" is intended to provide special recognition for people who often function as unsung heroes of the festival: the Regional Production Respondents. As is often said, the on-site response is the heart and soul of the KCACTF mission of learning about the theatre, and every weekend many of our colleagues donate their time and talents toward that mission.
If you feel you have encountered a potential nominee, please consider the following items. Did the person exhibit truly exceptional commitment to KCACTF through their oral response, their professionalism, their collegiality, their flexibility, their efficient travel and punctuality, their willingness to go above and beyond the normal expectations of serving as a respondent? If so, please outline in a short paragraph of less than 150 words why this person would be a deserving recipient.
The Region 5 Executive Committee will review all nominations and will present the "Road Warrior Award" winner(s) at the regional festival in January. Thank you for taking the time to recognize a colleague!
Regional Executive Committee members and last year’s winners are not eligible for this year’s award
