New Faces 2022 is presented in collaboration with The Casting Society of America.

BEA and our partners support equal opportunities for all students regardless of race, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin. The Roger Rees Awards is committed to maintaining the highest levels of professionalism and ethical responsibility.

AWARDS ELIGIBILITY

All high schools located throughout the Greater New York region are eligible to submit students for consideration of a New Faces 2022 Honor. There is no requirement for the school to produce performances in theater, dance, or other disciplines, or to offer a formal theatre arts program, performance-focused clubs, or extracurricular activities.

While no set level performance experience is required, students should submit in categories in which they have an interest and skill in a genre that best showcases their talent.

ADJUDICATION

All video submissions will be reviewed by a panel of professional casting directors who will complete a Roger Rees Awards vetted rubric intended to identify students who demonstrate exceptional or unique talent.

The ten highest scoring students* in each category will become Nominees who will receive in-person professional coaching in the category in which they are Nominated. Students will then have the opportunity to resubmit their video auditions which will be reviewed by another team of casting directors, administrators representing a variety of higher education institutions, and/or industry professionals who are providing access to educational scholarships, skills training, or professional opportunities.

Note: A student* may be selected as a Nominee in more than one category.

STUDENT RECOGNITION

One or more students will be awarded the opportunity for private coaching, master classes, pre-college scholarships, or professional auditions.
