Judith Ranaletta has dedicated her life to bringing theater education to thousands of young people. Through her boundless time, talent and energy, Judith Ranaletta gave us all experiences that we cherish, and launched the professional careers of so many of her students who decided to pursue careers in the performing arts. Now its our turn to return the favor.
The 2015 Tony Awards® & Carnegie Mellon University have joined to launch the first, national recognition program to honor K-12 theatre educators. The winning teacher – who best demonstrates a positive impact on the lives of students, advancing the theatre profession and a commitment to excellence – will receive the “Excellence in Theatre Education Award” to be presented on stage at the 2015 Tony Awards and a financial contribution will be made to the theatre arts program at the winner’s school.
YOUR VOTE will help tell the Tony nominating committee what we already know – that Judith Ranaletta is a gift to theater education, and would make an excellent first winner in this incredibly important, and long overdue, category.
