This idea of young people showing their acting chops and being recognized for it is something that he would have adored. So, I hope everybody who is competing for the Roger Rees Awards understands this kind of lifelong commitment to trying to be better at what we, who work in the theater, try to do. What Roger's life is a great example of is that you never stop learning, you never stop working, you never stop striving to be better. These kids here today are on that path, and if Roger's name is on that path as a signpost, then Heaven is happier today because he's up there pointing down going, ‘yeah, yeah, yeah, keep going, keep going, keep at it, just keep at it.’" - Rick Elice
