High School Musical Theater Adjudicator

The Philadelphia Independence Awards

Post Date: Sep 8, 2023


The Philadelphia Independence Awards, Philly's nonprofit awards program dedicated to celebrating high school musical theater, seeks Adjudicators for its 2023-24 season! 

All Adjudicators are required to see and evaluate 11-13 high school musicals (within a 20-mile radius of Philadelphia's City Hall) and to complete an online evaluation within 48 hours of performances. Please note: we can not guarantee you will be assigned performances in your own communities. Most productions occur Thursdays-Sundays in November, March, and April; some weekends (largely in the spring) may require you to see two or more productions

Additional requirements include attendance at a virtual Adjudicator's training on October 18th at 7pm. Often you may bring a guest to performances. All Adjudicators must abide by school district COVID-related guidelines, which may include wearing masks and/or showing proof of vaccination. 

Adjudicators are responsible for their own transportation to productions. While we try to schedule shows closest to the proximity of adjudicator residence for convenience, public transportation does not always go directly to each school. Travel stipend of $20 per show attended is offered to Adjudicators only at the end of the year upon completion of responsibilities. Adjudicators are not intended to be full-time positions or a primary income source

This is an excellent opportunity for educators (or future educators), actors, technicians, production staff, musicians, and/or graduate theater/music/arts education students. Past adjudicators are welcome to re-apply. We strongly encourage artists of underrepresented communities to apply.  All applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetic information, disability, age, or veteran status.
