The Metropolitan Atlanta Theater Awards committee is now accepting applications for the 2018 season.
The notice went out via social media on April 18th (see original Facebook post below).
The MAT Awards began in 1994 as a vehicle to honor members of the metro Atlanta theatre community and their contributions to the performing arts. Award categories include acting, set design, costume design, directing, ensemble, sound, and lighting. Original works are also recognized.
Each season, the organization accepts submissions from community and non-union professional theatres. From there, judges attend shows throughout the year and then assign scores using a score sheet. Winners are chosen based on those scores.
The 2018 season runs from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018. The application deadline is June 1st. Registration can be completed using the application on the MAT Awards website.
The 11th Annual MAT Award Ceremony, honoring winners from the nominees from the previous season, is set for August 27, 2017 at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center. More information can be found via the Facebook event page.
